Knitting Olympics and a freebie!

First, I want to give you a heads up that Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (and friends) are running the knitting olympics again this year. I took part four years ago and had a great time! The premise is that you cast on a project as the Olympic Flame is lit and finish it before the flame goes out. It's a personal challenge. You can find out more details and register here. I won't be taking part this year because I have too many other projects on the go, but I'll be cheering the rest of you on.

Now for the freebie. I have a copy of the 2009 Quilt calendar shown above which contains patterns for 13 different quilts. I hate to throw it out so if you would like it, leave a comment!


  1. I've seen that calenda and it looks like it's wonderful.

  2. I love quilting calendars. This one looks exceptional.
    Funny, the word verification is "dishout".

    Mrs Noofy

  4. Gee....I seem to always be doing something like that, as with that mile long scarf!!!
    Maybe a pair of socks, or that devil hat in domiKNITrix.
    Not that I would wear it regularly, just when I wanted to annoy people!!! (yes, I would wear it regularly!!!)'s been a long day and I am ready for feet up and hot tea!


  5. Okay, I have officially started the knit-a-long.
    It is the Snow Devil Hat from domiKNITrix, I have already had to rip out the front once, and heaven help me when I get to the ties and horns!
    It is, of course, in Canadian RED!!!
    For some this might be a small project but I guarantee....I will be lucky to get this done.
    MA---it's all your fault!!! LOL!!
    Off to rest...feeling rotten this evening; did too mich.

    (what little I have seen of the opening ceremonies are beautiful...DH is *watching* with eyes closed and snoring, the Leafs game....grrrrrrrr.....


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
