Well, I seem to be a bit of a follower this week. I have signed up for a few knitalongs and maybe even lost my mind.
The first one that I signed up for was the 200sox knitalong sponsored by the purling ps I have ordered yarn for the Meg Swanson stockings and have been swatching up some stash which is much too fine but it has given me some practice in the color work which I haven't done in years.
Then I stumbled, gosh no one stumbles upon the Yarn Harlot, lets just say that I read about Stephanie's knitting Olympics and followed her link to the Allegro Yarn site and before I knew what had happened I had ordered this . And after doing a little more blog reading, I saw Erin had fearlessly thrown her hat in the ring and I threw mine in too, also not being able to watch much of the Olympics. But as I haven't yet been posted on the official page I keep thinking maybe I can back out of this insane endeavor. Maybe the Homer Simpson Olympics are more my speed since I haven't received the pattern and it may require lots of dreaded seaming .
Then Wendy points out the Hannealong and I just happen to have two (not one, but two) Hanne kits that I ordered with the check my mother gave me for my birthday (although I will say I had to throw some money in too -- they are a bit dear and I think I got a good e-bay deal). So here is the encouragement to get started on these two lovely jackets. I have the Mermaid #5 black, cypress and kingfisher and Ballerina #8 in black and camel.
So it seems this week that I am a joiner -- lets see what it brings.
