Well, I was going to knit a baby sweater with a hamster on the back for the 2006 Knitting Olympics, but it didn't seem like quite enough of a challenge. Sure, I've never knitted a baby sweater before, but 16 days, even with intarsia, just seems like a little too much free time. So at the suggestion of Meg, I will now be finishing my languishing UFOs. This includes the cabled and bobbled hat, the argyle socks, and Fiesta Feet. It may also include the Leaf and Tendril socks if I plow these three quickly. Since these projects are already cast on, the rule is that I cannot work on them until the flame is lit on Opening Night. This will be good, I think. Some of these projects have been languishing for a long time and need to be finished off.
Rosemarkie is almost done. I've finished the front band and one of the arm bands, and the other band I'm currently picking up. Once the bands are done, I will wash and block it, trim and cross-stitch the steeks, and sew the buttons on. It's in bad need of blocking as it looks more like a pile of colorful yarns than a sweater.
We were reunited with the Celtic Collection last night at the radio station (I was a doofus and left it there last week). After Meg smacked me with the book (paperback, fortunately), all was forgiven.
