Have you all been following the stink about the Ravelympics this year? I'm watching the incredibly long and slightly confusing opening ceremonies right now...thank goodness Matt Lauer is giving me a play-by-play explanation. David Beckham is currently navigating a speedboat up the Thames with the Olympic torch bearer. Obviously.
Challenge yourself to knit something during the games: an entire scarf, a hat in the round, your first sweater, or the most complicated lace shawl on the planet. Anyway, if you'd like to join in the knitting and crocheting fun, check out the Ravlery group for the Ravellinic Games. There are many many smaller teams on Ravelry, too. Join a group, make some friends, and get to work. If you run out of yarn, lose your needles, or just need a pep talk, you know where to find us.
Also, mark your calendars for next weekend. There might be a yarn sale...
