Stephanie, when asked last year if she was going to host this again, replied in the negative, citing her busy life, the amount of time it took up 4 years ago in postings and the burgeoning Ravelry community which already had many teams going. I could definitely understand.
This year I considered joining one of those Ravelry Olympic Teams but just did not get around to it plus I have so many things going that starting something new - no let me phrase that better - waiting to start something new didn't cut it for me. My knitting ADD is really bad this year.
On Feb 5 the Yarn Harlot posted a blog saying she would be glad to sponsor another event but that she could not possibly take on the listing part of it again and asked for a volunteer.

A computer is doing in seconds what several people took hours and hours to do only 4 years ago) and so listed the rules.
Neat! Wonderful! YES. Just the thing I need to get the Newsboy Cap done. Well, out of my head and onto needles and written to be honest. It has been gestating in there for weeks just waiting for space to be born. I will do the swatching this week and maybe write a few ideas as practice. We are allowed, nay required, to prepare but must not cast on until the Opening Ceremonies Friday, Feb 12.
I am signed up, listed on the really l o n g official page and am ready to compete.
