Let the Games Begin!!!!!!!

Olympic Spirit! Can you feel it?!

I LOVE the Olympics. I love the stories of the athletes, the USA pride, the dreams and hopes for all to see, the competition and having a great reason to watch TV ALL DAY LONG.

And now another reason to love the olympics....

Ravelry is holding it's own version of the Olympics. The knitting kind.

Now, technically we're supposed to have casted on a new project at the start of the opening ceremonies. Well, I'm a rule breaker. We were on vacation and I had forgotten new yarn but I did have my color affection shawl with me. And I have promised myself that I can't cast on anything new until this is complete. I already have a sore elbow from non-stop knitting. Long gone are my super-athletic in shape soccer playing days. Now I have knitting injuries. Yikes. Maybe I should start working out again....after my shawl is complete.

So, here I am.

Rooting on our USA teams and knitting away.

Join in the fun!



  1. I'm busting my stash with my Sparks team of knitters. I'm making 8" squares for KAScare, which puts them together for AIDS orphans in South Africa. (It's too hot to knit anything big!)

  2. Ann, do you have a link for that group? What a nice idea. I would love to contribute.

  3. aren't you adorable?! have fun watching and knitting!
