Knitting Olympics

I've Just about lost my mind.....I've decided to participate in Yarn Harlot's evil scheme to make us all go crazy. I have joined the Knitting Olympics! The object is to pick a project that you will find challenging, cast on at the opening ceremonies and have it completely finished by the time the olympic flame is put out. 4 kids...knitting deadlines......yep...I'm insane. But at least I will be happily knitting when they tie me up in restraints and lock me up. My original choice was the Victorian Lace Shawl but I was too anxious to start it, that I cast it on already. so...I decided to knit this:

It is the Smock Jacket from the Debbie Bliss Celtic Collection. I have had the book for 2 years now and have yet to knit a pattern from it. I think it will be a challenge for me to complete in 16 days. Wish me luck!

On other news...I'd like to say hello and thankyou to my awesome secret pal who has been spoiling me with funny e-cards and e-mails for the last week or so. THANKS! You always make my day!
