all righty, i'm getting geared up for the event of the year, The Ravelympics on Ravelry! if you haven't joined, or even heard of this and you're a fiber artist of any sort, you're missing out on a heap of fun!
it's fashioned very much like the real Olympics and starts the same day, 08.08.08.
there are teams: a ton-including international ones. i'm on Team BSA-naturally.
there are events: the ones on my sidebar-as well as the sock put, amigurumi-n-toys toss, afghan marathon, cable steeplechase, shawl relay, vest vault...the list goes on.
there's even a Ravelympic Village to hang out in and meet new people, talk to teammates, get encouragements...
they are really putting on the show for this and i'm so excited to be a part of it!
