Knitting Olympics KAL
I figured since I started the first thread about it, I would create the KAL for it. The rules for the KAL can be found on Yarn Harlot's web site. I would like to invite everyone that's participating to post what they have chosen for their event.

I'm doing my HBC Booger for my event. I'm doing it in Patons Classic Wool for the cream colour, and the stripes will be done in Peer Gynt.

I'm doing the Eyelet Vest from Debbie Bliss' Special Knits, using Dale's Baby Ull. If a friend of mine decides not to make the second one, I'm going to make two. They're for two little girls ages, 2 years and the other 4 months, so it's not going to take forever. But since it's a challenge for me to finish anything, I thought they would make good projects. I can't wait to get started. I've already been swatching like a mad-woman!

Thanks for starting a KAL thread, Nicole!

I'm going to be making a Clapotis with Malabrigo yarn - it's merino with subtle varigation. Amy actually helped me find it when a few of us met up back in december.

I am sooooooo excited to actually start. I made a small swatch to try out the pattern, and the yarn knits up so well! Waiting until Friday is going to be really hard.

Well I was going to do a sweater, but I can't get the yarn in time, so I am going to do a layette set for my friends neice/nephew.

I'm making two cabled items -- the Cookie Sweater (in Malabrigo worsted) and the Out to Play Coat (in Nashua Creative Focus) from Miss Bea's Rainy Day.

I was going to do a baby feet blanket... but now I think I am going to have to switch over and do Musical pieces... a Bolaro Jacket, Laced Edged Gloves, and Topsey hair... ( my own creation there). The show is the last weekend in Feb. SO I am on a very tight schedule!

I am in love with this yarn. I mean, it is serious. I don't want to put it down, I don't want to quit touching it. It is so luscious. And I am sooooo happy with the color. Mmmmmmm. Or, as my boys would say, "Nyum-nyum-nyum-nyum-nyum."

Viking Chicken Hat, sized for my nephew. Pattern is in my sig! Couldn't find apricot colored yarn, so this will be a cooked, rather than a raw, viking chicken.
