On the Knit/Crochet Front The Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games start tomorrow and, more important, the Ravelympics starts tomorrow at 7:00 am for those of us in the Central Time Zone. What is Ravelympics some may ask? Well you should take up knitting and crocheting, join Ravelry and you would know. But, since there are some out there who never will, so, Ravelympics is the knitters and crocheters version of Olympic Games. The rules are that we can not cast on until the Opening Ceremonies begin in China and that is at 7:00 am my time, and you must be completed with you project by the time the Flame is extinguished. I am in the Sock Put event and tonight I have come home from work, taken my shower, put on my training clothes ( PJs, of course) and I am now in training. I am watching Battlestar Galactica and I am balling my beautiful Lorna's Lace Shepherd Sock in a wonderful red color way. I will not be able to cast on at 7:00 am as I will be on my way to work, but as soon as I make it to my local SNB tomorrow night, I will. Let the Games begin.
