Knitting Olympics

I am very excited to be participating in this years Knitting Olympics.

The Knitting Olympics takes place every 4 years to coincide with the Winter Olympics. The idea is to knit an entire sweater during the 17 days in which the Olympics are taking place. The size & difficulty of the sweater is left up to the participant. All participants should cast on & begin their sweaters during the Opening Ceremonies (this Friday). Those who complete their sweaters before the Olympic Flame is extinguished earns a gold metal.

The Knitting Olympics was started by Canadian Stephanie Pearl-McPhee who writes wonderfully funny books on knitting and has a very interesting knitting blog.

I will be making a "Play Date Hoodie" from the Lion Brand Yarn website, in a recycled cotton yarn. And will be donating my completed sweater to the St. Rita's Auction this spring.

Wish Me Luck!
