Citius, Altius, Fortius

If you haven't already guessed from the post title, I have been convinced to participate in the Knitting Olympics. What convinced me? The fact that I get to represent my city, that's what.

In addition to Team Boston, I have read about a Fair Isle team. Are there any other groups getting together?

What is my event? Well, I have been thinking for a while that the Spring Breeze Top pattern could use some tweaking. I would like to improve its fit, create a real pattern schematic, and (most importantly), offer it in different sizes.

It's going to take some training and preparation to be in shape to cast on by the 10th of February, but I think that I'm up to the challenge.

Will I finish? In true Olympic spirt I'll give it my best try:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well."

 

Revisiting again! All the power to you, once a project is off of my plate, it's D O N E done! I do love that pattern though, so maybe more sizes would be nice. ;-)

ok, i'm in too. i've decided it's a good opportunity to re-knit my NBAT.

Welcome to the madness! There are more teams than you can count. Pretty much anyone who can create a button has a team. :)

Go Team Boston! I'll be watching from the sidelines.

Oy! I'm signed up for the Olympics but I'm thinking of withdrawing. I'm not sure I can take the pressure!

Go, Colleen, go! I'll be cheerleading from the sidelines :).

Welcome, fellow Olympian! Is it crazy that I'm so looking forward to this??

Good luck with your Olympic Quest! I can hardly contain my excitement and have hidden my yarn so I'm not tempted to start early.

I would love it if you made your Spring Breeze top in more sizes, that would be awesome! Go Colleen Go!

You inspired me to knit for Team California (perhaps I'm the only member thus far)...
