I feel on the brink of something. I realize I'm saying that and then following it with a bunch of pictures of yarn and my cat...again, which begs the question, "How interesting can this brink be?" But, it really isn't about the yarn.
Ravelympics. In case you have never heard of this athletic event of sorts, it is a knit-along held during the Olympics in which teams of knitters watching the summer games from around the world compete for the gold in their own events like Charity Rowing (knitting items for charity), Synchronized Stashbusting (an attempt to compete while using up old yarn you've hoarded), Sweater Triathlon, Afghan Marathon... you get the idea. All items must begin and end with the opening and closing ceremonies of the London Olympics.
The point is to work fast, pick projects that challenge you, and enjoy the online antics on Ravelry. Oh, yeah, and you can watch the Olympics. If you should finish in an event Bobicus Maximus will be handing out blog badges as medals. Silly, huh?
