Join our Knitch Winter Games 2010


We're all excited about the coming of the winter games (what dyed-in-the-wool knitter wouldn't be?) and we love the idea of Stephanie Pearl McPhee's Knitting Olympics as well as Ravelry's Ravelympics 2010. (See Stephanie's blog for hilarious explanation.) We are too late to enter our Knitch selves as a team, so let's do our own version right here on N. Highland Avenue, aka "Whistler Mountain of the South".

Choose a project that's a challenge to you to begin at the time of the Opening Ceremonies (Friday, February 12, 9 pm Atlanta time) and complete by Closing Ceremonies (Sunday, February 28, 8:30 pm Atlanta time). Sign up at the shop and, with your commitment, we'll give you an hour of help (no charge) on any Thursday night during the Olympics, on your Olympic project, if you need it. We'll take pictures of our Knitch Olympians with their Personal Best projects to post on our blog. (You'll be famous.) Everyone who finishes is golden!

Any chance of signing up online? Trying my first argyle--a vest!

Sure! I think you just did!! We will add your name and project to our list. Where are you located?

Great idea! Can I win a medal for the most amount of times that a hat is ripped due to incorrect sizing?

Very funny! I think you would have a huge amount of competition in that category!!
