So yes I have decided to throw my knitting needles into the arena for the 2006 Knitting Olympics. (On a side note I wonder how long it will be before the IOC starts sending out cease and desist letters for the use of the term “olympics”). Anyway, I’ve decided on making Knitty’s Tempting II. I was telling my sister Vanessa about KO’06 and she said I was crazy, therefore I’ve decided to make it as a birthday gift for her. That and she’s smaller than I am so I have less to knit!
I was planning on using GGH Bali instead of Rowan Calmer since it’s quite a bit cheaper, but I didn’t realize that the Yarnware store is closed today. So instead I went to my LYS and spent $48! on 4 balls of Calmer. Yikes! Well we’ve got a blizzard on the way and I wanted to have my yarn in hand for when I get snowed in. And also I can feel good for supporting a local small business. I just wish I had thought of this last weekend when they had a 20% off Superbowl Sale.
