After much deliberation and all sorts of ideas, I decided to be true to myself and do my own thing for the Knitting Olympics.
To make it more fun, I invite you to come (and send your friends over too) and place your guess how many Ropes Cowls I can knit during those 17 days?
The person that will come closest to the number of my finished cowls* on February 28 (not including the 2 I already knitted and the one that is currently on my needles) will receive a package of goodies from me that may or may not include one of these Ropes! :)
Please leave your guess in the comments of this post.
As I may want to discuss my progress here, I will leave the comments open until Midnight of Tuesday, February 16, 2010 (12:00 am est) which will be the deadline for placing guesses.
Please only one guess per person. Thank you :)
If more than one person will guess the correct number of finished cowls* or will be at the same numerical distance from the final number, I will randomly choose one winner either with the help of one of those online number thingies or the good old hat.
So lets play!
*Please note – we are guessing the number of finished cowls I will have at the end of the games not the number of actual ropes I will knit.
Each of my cowls will include as many ropes as are needed to make it a nice wearable cowl, my guess is that most will be around 7 ropes (as in the original pattern) but some may include a few more (if I use lace yarn it looks better in my view with a few more ropes) or maybe only 6 if the yarn is heavier (I don’t think I will go to very heavy yarn that will require less ropes).
p.s.: Do you think this is going to be the start of a new game in our Knitting Olympics? :)
