Ravellenic GamesThe London Olympics are less than one month away! If you’re a member of Ravelry, you know what that means: The Ravellenic Games! Formerly known as the Ravelympics, this event brings together yarncrafters from around the globe as complete yarncrafting projects during the duration of the Olympics. Each participant selects a team (think of it as your country) and participates in special yarn-related events, including Sock Put, Sweater Triathalon, Synchronized Stash Busting, and more. There are just two rules: challenge yourself and finish the project during the Olympics (July 27th – August 12th)! For more information, be sure to visit the Ravellenic Games Ravelry board.

    Judging from the article I read yesterday on washingtonpost.com, the USOC, which was hassling Ravelry for the name Ravelympics, grossly underestimated the power of ticked off crafters. The USOC had to apologize twice to the Ravelry community because the first time wasn’t strong or sincere enough. Way to go, Ravelry and crew–it’s about time somebody took on those pompous blowhards at the USOC. Good for you!

    Kind of reminds me of how the TSA backed off not letting people bring needles on aircraft. My needles and I are not a threat to anyone on a plane, ever, but try to keep me from knitting on a long overcrowded flight. Then we will have issues.
