Going for Gold

Thank you everyone for your suggestions as to what I should knit for Ravelympics 2010. I still struggled deciding until the very last minute. I thought that I was going to do Lloie until five minutes before the games started, but I was concerned as I didn't want to rush it as I wanted Lloie for my camp project (did I mention, I'm in!!!!!!), so I decided with minutes to spare to switch to the Elise cardigan by Black Purl. It's the perfect project! The gold silk yarn is very motivating in achieving my goal of getting that Gold Ravelympics Medal. I'm 25% completed already!


In addition to the Ravelympic Knitting, I've been squeezing in all the reading I can (again, there are benefits to insomnia I find.) I've read a few books on it now and am looking for some more suggestions of good reading material. Any books you suggest?
