My daughter has talked me into it - joining the knitting Olympics. Since in doing so, I committed to completing a project in only 16 days, I have decided make a toy for the grandbaby. I'm doing the kitty-cat from knitty, and I'm planning to put jingle bells or something rattley in it. That said, I am joining team DPN - for those of us knitting with (and poking people with) our DPNs during the event.
With school, and work, and getting divorced, I have very little time, but this may be just the thing I need to get my mind off things.
