WIP Weds: Getting Ready for Ravellenic 2014

With only two days to go to the Olympics

and the opening of the Ravellenic Games 2014. Maybe I should explain… I am a member of an online knitting group that is international, with a couple of million members. Each Olympics we run parallel games for knitters that reflect events that are happening at the games. The last time I participated was in 2012, it was such fun. I joined Team Canada and am making a run at 12 medals this time, in 17 days!

I’m on Team Canada

The events I plan to enter. I think most of this is possible for me.

These are doubling for LYS yarn Challenge as well as Ravellenic. Both are on at the same time.
