Ravelympics 2008!

Whoever thought of this is a genius! =P

I calculated the time difference and so it'll start on Aug 8 (Fri) 5 AM and end near Aug. 24 (Sun) 5AMish (Until the flame goes out) . The start and end time is not so good.

I'm in the Vest Vault and Home Stuff Hammerthrow. I was thinking about doing the sweater one but it might take too long. I just wanna make as many things as possible before the school begins.

The Knitting Law Students group might sign up a new team. =)

*Excerpt from Ravelympics 2008 Overview page:

Concept: You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Olympics (Aug. 8)- and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Aug. 24). That’s 17 days. Would you rather work on your burgeoning WIPs? Then join up for the WIPs Wrestling. All other events are for newly cast on projects!


  1. The project must be a challenge for you to complete in 17 days.
  2. No casting on before Opening Ceremonies commence in Beijing.
  3. Finish before the flame goes out.
  4. You may swatch before the games. (I consider this “training.”)
