The Opening Ceremonies started just a few minutes ago (photo above is from a dress rehearsal) and around the world, knitters are casting on for this year's Knitting Olympics, hosted by Ravelry.
I really enjoyed participating in the 2006 Knitting Olympics, but as with the real games, I'll be watching from the sidelines this year. We won't talk about my miserable last place finish on Team First Sweater. It will be so fun to sit back and watch people compete. There had better be some exciting montage sequences with stirring scores!
