Calling all stitchers…the Ravellenic Games begin today! For those of you who are not familiar with this (extremely) fun and engaging event, the Ravellenic Games (newly renamed) is something Ravelry has created for Ravellers to knit and/or crochet (or spin if that’s your thing) alongside the 2012 Summer Olympics being held in London this year.
There is a mass cast on during the Opening Ceremonies and you can join a team and participate in 32 events such as:
Single Skein Sprint to name a few! Such clever names…be sure to check them all out.
This year I plan on frogging two projects for the “frogging trampoline” event, the beginnings of a sock and a pair of mittens almost completed…I love them both but I have different plans for the sock yarn, and the mittens are just a bit too snug for my liking…so sad to frog things, but hey, sometimes things just don’t work out!
For the “WIP Wrestling” event…even though I have so, so many unfinished things laying around, I plan on finishing a scarf that I started long ago and matching mittens in a pretty brown tweed.
I’m going to snap some photos of all this later this morning when the sun makes her debut…
Definitely check out the Ravellenic Games, here’s the link to the informational page they have set up, loaded with instructions on how to participate, the different events, and lots more:
