it's that time

Just wanted to let you know that Sarah is hosting her winter olympics again. I'm not sure if I will be participating, as I have a bunch of little projects I want to finish this month... my own personal challenge... but I do love a personal challenge. (2 more inches before midnight?) The challenge: start a new project during opening ceremonies on the 12th and have it finished by closing ceremonies on the 28th. And, if you are already participating in the ravelympics, you can easily join in with Sarah. Plus, Sarah is offering a chance to win a gift card to be used in her shop. Bonus.

I read this post last night and loved your idea, but you also helped me in my classroom today. My fourth graders and I were discussing the Olympics and working on some Olympic trivia when the question of the color sequence of the rings came up. I visualized your post and...there it was! Thanks!!

Oh, man. You are more woman than I! I can't wait to see the end result of your Ravelympics. I love your photo, too. Only a dedicated knitter would have yarn in every color necessary to make a yarn set of Olympic rings! <3

I will attempt to meet my challenge in the comfort and warmth of my own living room. :-)

larissa said...

your yarn rings are awesome! can't wait to see your projects. i think i'll just pledge to complete the shrug i've been (not) knitting for the last two weeks - between all the snow days and valentine's crafts there's very little time for knitting. Have a wonderful weekend.
