Okay, I'm in....

I was planning on knitting another pair of socks anyway, as part of 200Sox, but now I have a deadline! I'm signing on to the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics. The rules are easy - cast on during the Winter Olympics' opening ceremonies on Feb. 10 and bind off during the closing ceremonies on Feb. 26. Swatching is considered 'training,' so you can do that in advance. And you're supposed to choose a project that will be a challenge but not impossible. So I've chosen the Crusoe socks from Knitty. They'll be my second pair of socks, they're on teeny-weeny size 1 needles, knit on four needles (rather than the five I used for my first pair), and, as the World's Slowest Knitter, finishing anything in 16 days will be a challenge!

Are you going to use that Koigu you picked up at HCW? You're a brave chick to take up the Olympic torch! Rock on, sister!
