Join Knitting Clio and other fiber addicted academics for Ravelympics 2010. This is a “competition” organized by the online fiber community Ravelry to coincide with the Olympic Games. The first one was held in conjunction with the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing. [in between, Ravelry held the World’s Works-in-Progress Wrestlemania] The concept: cast on or start your project during the opening ceremonies on February 12, and finish the project by the end of games on February 28th. Official rules are posted here.
NB: Ravelympics is separate from the Knitting Olympics organized by Yarn Harlot, which also looks like a lot of fun. I wonder if I can enter both?
