Knitting Olympics

Hokay, gonna squeak in just before the opening ceremonies (the rerun at 8pm tonight counts too, right?) with this last-minute post about the Knitting Olympics, thanks to a tip-off from Haley. Though it appears to be an international knitting blog phenomenon, this is an initiative of Toronto's own Yarn Harlot.
In brief, "You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10)- and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Feb 26)".
Other stuff:
*The project must be a challenge for you to complete in 16 days.
* No casting on before the flame is lit.

*Finish before the flame goes out.
*Winners get a gold medal button for their blog (if you have one), your name entered into a draw for a prize from Yarn Harlot, and (awwww) the personal satisfaction of knowing you are an Olympic level knitter.

Full deets and a list of participants here.

Also from Haley - apparently Wolfitt's is having an insane sale and sketchbooks are only $5 - act fast!
