Ravellenic Games

Olympic Games. Unless you live under a rock, you know what they are and that they are happening. A few years back, knitters and crocheters started challenging themselves to yarn projects as they watched the games. This has morphed into a giant competition on Ravelry with categories (toy toss, shawl crawl, etc) with "medals" and prizes. I decided to join in on the fun this year and join Team Planet June. I have completed four items so far (which also means I am closer to my 365 projects by 2014 goal) and I and am halfway through completing a shawl. Are you participating in the Ravellenic Games? What projects are you currently working on? Have you enjoyed the Olympics so far? I really like swimming and gymnastics, although my old roommate is good friends with the 2004 & 2008 fencing gold medalist. So I cheer for Mariel too (side note, she carried the US flag in the opening ceremonies).

One of the pictures below shows my project bags; each includes a pattern, yarn, hook, and whatever notions I might need. The other picture is of my completed projects thus far; two hats, a candy cane, and a whale. Random, I know.
