From February 7th-23rd, Team Net Loft will compete in the 2014 Ravellenic Games. This is an event put on by Ravelry to encourage people to challenge their knitting skills by completing a project within the timeframe of the Winter Olympics. Cast-on happens during the opening ceremonies and knitting must be finished by closing ceremonies.
Signing up can be a bit tricky. I'll step you through how to sign up officially with Ravelry. If you don't want to go through the bother, you can follow along on Facebook and/or come into the shop on Monday's Knitter's Night Out February 10th and 17th.
