For all of you who have been following my blog for a while you’ve seen my creative outlet shift a bit toward quilting, sewing and the like but as I’ve said here many times. In my heart of heart I’m a knitter and always will be. When the seam won’t work, can’t understand the quilt pattern, my 2 1/2 inch strips are measuring 2 3/4 and I want to throw my rotary cutter across the room my knitting needles are sitting there in the basket whispering it’s ok, we’re here. I reach, knit a few rows and it’s all better. Unfortunately I haven’t completed a knitting project in ages…but that’s about to change.
I’ve decided to unofficially participate in the Ravellenic Games 2012. Meaning I’m not joining a team or tagging a project, etc but I plan to start and complete a knitting project during the games. This was formerly known by another name but I discovered recently that there’s been quite a brew-haha about it. If you’re as late to the “game” as I am you can read about it here.
That said I haven’t participated in this in years but I’m itching for it right now. So tomorrow, July 27, 2012 as the world watches the opening ceremonies for the Olympics in London, I and thousands of knitters around the world will be starting in their own events.
Here’s my project….I’m so excited to start this.

I had other, bigger projects in mind but then thought, “be realistic Den…” So Marin it is!!! I will wind my yarn today and kick off is tomorrow evening? Anyone else out there joining in the fun?
