After much thinking, I've decided to challenge myself by knitting exclusively with Lion Brand yarns for the duration of the Olympics. Now, I'm not dissing the Lion...I use their yarns for lots of projects, but I have a hard time returning to them when some sassy little woolen bats her pretty eyes.

Project under consideration:

A sleeveless top
A baby blanket
Scarves, scarves, scarves!

ETA: The "Why"

There's actually a reason for this--I'm writing my dissertation and want to participate, but I just don't have the mental energy to do something that would be a technical challenge for me. I teach at JoAnn's and need to make some models that I can use for class preview days (using the yarns that they carry consistently). I have LB stashed for this purpose...and the projects I was planning for models are pretty mindless knits. So that's the why behind the knitting.
