I'm not a contender in the Knitting Olympics (who knew there was such a thing?), but my new project does coincide with the challenge pretty nicely. Look at this very pretty wool yarn I picked up at Home Ec Workshop in Iowa City the other day.
It's currently about 6 rows into becoming a nice, warm, very simple, chunky knitted scarf. I hope to have it done by the time the next winter Olympics rolls around.
