The Olympics for Crocheting?

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 :-)
