I haven't knitted/crocheted in so long, so Ravelympics 2010 is the perfect even to force me back into it. Ravelympics is an event held over at ravelry. You start your project anytime after the Olympics opening ceremony and must finish by the closing ceremony. According to the ravelry group, there are only 24 days left until the Olympics. This means I must start deciding on a pattern. Last time I was in the baby dressage category and did Presto Chango, which turned out really cute.
I think this time I'll do something for myself. But I have to be careful not to pick something too involved that I won't finish in time. I've always wanted to do a wrap or shawl, so maybe I'll give that a shot. It won't be a very intricate lacy one, given the time limit, but something cozy would be nice.
I had intended to include a poll in this post to see what item my blogger friends think I should take on, but many patterns are only viewable through ravelry, and you need to be a member to see them. Oh well, I will post my final decision soon since I will have to choose the yarn.
This is one of the three possibilities.
