I have evidently managed to drag myself out of my knitting rut and have cast on for/have in the pipeline a glut of projects.

A. I have one glove done and may get round to cast on the second one soon - with any luck before the cold weather ends and I don't get to actually use the things until next winter (by which time I will have lost one or both gloves anyway).

B. I treated myself to a nice Christmas present of some issues of Interweave Knits magazine and have been well and truly inspired. The first of the projects from there that I have cast on for is the Union Square Market Pullover (it's the cover photo of the issue linked to) using some merino yarn that I got from Texere.

C. Also in my wisdom I have decided to challenge myself to the the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics and my project for that will be Dibs on Ribs from Interweave's website - sorry for being a little Interweave-centric at the moment. I have not yet managed to make up my mind on a yarn (well actually a shade of Kureyon) for this one yet which will hopefully not prove to be too much of a setback.

I think the upshot of all this is that I will be well and truly frazzled by the end of February but hopefully a few nice garments better off - it'll all be worth it!

I'm planning to make Dibs on Ribs for the Knitting Olympics too. I plan to buy the yarn this weekend, read through the pattern, amtch the color repeats, swatch, and practice my provisonal cast on.

I'll be intersted in seeing your progress, and I'll cheer you on.
