I participated in a challenge or two of the original Project Yarnway in 2010, and then observed from the sidelines for the rest of 2010 and 2011. This year, it's back, it's in different hands, and it's evolved.
This year, each challenge lasts three months instead of the original one. Themes are voted for, and are then combined with three random words from the "stash" to create the challenge. So I threw my hat in the ring.
I intended to knit a capulet to wear with my wedding dress. I was a bit ambitious. Lace-weight yarn in a loose, poncho-like style meant 696 stitches per round. It was as slow as molasses, but it's finally done! I was a day late, but the project is now more of a challenge than a contest, so it's okay.
