Yes! And for knitting, weaving & dyeing yarn too.
Ravelry is a fab place which I know that I've talked about before, and they are hosting their own 'all for fun' version of the Olympics. I have entered 4 of the games and am gearing up for tomorrow morning when it's international cast on/hooking time as the Opening Ceremony begins.
I'm crocheting a lacy shawl, a pair of hexagon motif slippers, a dalek egg cosy and I'm frogging (i.e. undoing - a fab 'technical term'. Named fogging because aapparently if you undo knitting it makes a kind of ribbit sound) a poncho I've fallen out with.
(It never ceases to amaze me about how geeky I can be with my crocheting - it's such a fantastic feeling!)
Enjoy the opening ceremony! And in the spirit of geekiness, UFOs and my love of The Doctor. Here is a photo of a lift that is in a building in Wellington that I fell in love with the other weekend :-)

Three years ago I went with my good friend Jo to pick up some material to re-upholster her dining room chairs. This weekend on a visit to Tauranga and we actually did it! (It has been a three year project plan.....)
We dismantled the chairs and did the bottoms first with lots of goes at trying to get the corners tidy, lots of little tacks and a good blob of fabric glue.
We also sanded down the highly varnished table and stained it with a Rimu stain
Very happy with the result :-)
I also heard a new name for WIP's this weekend, UFO (unfinished object) and PHD (projects half done) I like these new names. I do believe that this one had been a UFO.

The snot has taken over
It’s fuddeling my head
My eyes and nose are streaming
Used tissues surround my bed
Vicks™ is my perfume
It’s battling with the snot
Along with Nurofen™ Cold and Flu
They’re giving it all they’ve got!
I haven’t even crocheted
That’s how bad it’s been
Which is probably really a good thing
Who would want anything tinged with green?
