The Knitting Olympics

So, I did it. I signed up from the
Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics. In short, the rules of this Knit Along are:

  1. Choose a project that you feel is challenging. I've chosen a Fiber Trends Vest. My Knitting New Year's Resolution was to knit something that I could actually wear that wasn't a scarf, or socks or gloves -- something that required "GAUGE." A vest seems a little less challenging than a scary sweater, and maybe I can actually do it in 16 days. I'll be looking for the pattern, which is the Verstitility Vest this weekend. I hate to order just a pattern, because I end of paying the same for the shipping as the pattern.
  2. No casting on prior to the opening ceremony.
  3. Finish by the end of the Olympics.

The key here is Citius, Alitius, Fortius -- which (I am told) is Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger. That's a good ideal, so I'll give it a go.
