Citius, Alitius Fortius!

Thank you Suzanne for telling me about this fun event. Stephanie (AKA the yarn harlot) is setting up a Knitting Olympics and I've decided to join in on the fun. I just need some help deciding on what project to make.

Choice number 1 is the Catch-a-wave wrap from th 7/05 issue of creative knitting. It's a simple not so little wrap that has a zigzag pattern to it. Pros: Should definitely be able to finish this in 16 days and I can use yarn from my stash for the colorful ridges. Cons: Simple (possibly tedious and boring) stitch and not a huge challenge to complete in time.

Choice #2 is Marshmallow from the 6/05 issue of Knitting. This sweater was the whole reason I bought this issue. Pros: will be a challenge to complete; I already have the yarn I want to use; and it will be done just in time for our spring weather. Cons: It's and experienced design so I don't know if I'll be able to knit on it at SNB.

Choice #3 the world map sweater from Spring/summer of 1991. I've coveted this sweater since '91 but have 1 excuse after another for not making it. Pros: I want to make it and it fits the Olympic spirit. Cons: I have no freaking clue if I even have a hope of finishing it within the 16 day time frame.

And finally choice #4 is the Nasty Dog Dragon Scarf from scarf style. I've loved this scarf since Monica first shared her wonderful book. Pros: I need a scarf that is just mine and I can use some of the leftover Dr. Who yarn for the color work. Cons: I'm not sure how much I would actually wear it.

So those are my choices. What are your thoughts? Do I go for the huge challenge of the World sweater or do I go for something easier? Should I make something I will probably wear a lot (like Marshmallow) or go for something I've been wanting to make for a while? Decisions, decisions.

I am ALL IN for the marshmallow! It gets the gold because:

1. You really like it.
2. It would be very flattering.
3. You already have yarn.

After that...
a tie for Silver.

The dragon scarf--after Dr. Who, you have GOT to be scarf-sick. Its good though.

Wave shawl--pretty good. See also scarf issue above.

The world map (for me) does not place. Not so flattering. And BIG! and complicated!

I will not be offended in any way if you choose to ignore my opinions--I regularly send my own opinions to the trash.

Hi! I vote for the marshmallow as well. It would be a great piece for the spring :) Very pretty. My second pick would be the Catch a Wave wrap because you can use that into the spring as well. The other too seem heavy for a late winter project--- especially given the freakishly warm weather we've had lately in VA.

Knit something that is really a challenge. Afterall, it is the olympics!

I vote for the Nasty Dog Dragon Scarf from scarf style. Let me know what you decide and we can have a Nasty Dragon knit along!
