Originally I had intended to assert that I had not yet actually decided to attempt an entire sweater for the Ravelympics, when I found myself scrounging in the closet for the appropriate yarn. This means that I have apparently committed to trying to knit one entire sweater in 16 days. I haven't actually forgotten that in the past I have called Elizabeth Zimmerman a few purls short of a ribbing for suggesting that her January aran pattern could be completed within a one month time-frame--especially since it took me 4 months just to whine about the steeks--but I think yarn must emit certain fumes that erase all rational thought. Think about it--this would explain the existence of size zero (or, heaven forbid, size 000) knitting needles. It is such a powerful force that I actually caught myself thinking, "Hm....should I also enter a WIP just in case I finish the sweater early????"
I was relieved to see that projects could be entered in more than one event, so I will be also be able to enter the "Stash Compulsory Dance" event, as the yarn of choice
and I kept the questionable yarn for a future sweater for me.
Does anyone know how long a human being can go without sleep. and is it by any chance 16 days?????
