Is anyone else dithering over the Yarn Harlot's Olympic challenge? I am soooo in, but like what am I going to make?
I am all of a dither! I would like to do something I haven't done before but until next week I won't know how much time I'll have. You see this time next week, we'll know the outcome of the rental dispute we are embroiled in. Maybe we'll have to do lots of work at the old place, maybe we won't.
One of my friends is going to do an amazing laceweight shawl. I won't be, simply because I do other things than knit in my spare time. However, I would like to make a pair of these butterfly wings socks - I have not made real lace socks before. Then I thought I should do fair isle socks, or aran socks. Socks socks and socks cos whilst they would be a challenge, I have knitted a pair of plainish socks in 8 days before, so fancy socks in 16 days should be doable? I have done both fair isle and intarsia before (one day I'll show you the jumpers that I still have that I can't bear to throw away, including the one with the emu on the front, the batwing cardi with the geisha on the back and the one with the boy and girl gazing fondly at each other that I knitted in 1987).
Hmm, I reckon I need to go and delve into my books a bit. Back later!
