Knitting Olympics Wrapping Up

The Knitting Olympics are wrapping up today. This was a 16-day challenge to knitters around the world to start and complete a challenging knitting project to coincide with the winter Olympics in Italy. It was started by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee of yarn Over 3300 knitters signed up with lots of them joining teams such as Team Wales and Team DPN. There is even a Frappr map with over 1800 knitters on it. Some of the participants have their Fos and WIPs there. I’ll have a link in the show notes. And to all of you who participated, way to go!!!

And speaking of Frappr maps, you may have noticed that I have a button to the Knitting News Cast Frappr map. I’ll be talking about how you can win the knitting book I’m reviewing today, Mason-Dixon Knitting by tagging the map.

The next issue of Spun Magazine will be out in March.

The latest issue of the online knitting magazine, MagKnits, is posted. The February issue has a set of knitted sushi designed by Amy Polcyn on the front. Looks yummy enough to eat! Other patterns include a fancy looking child’s cardigan, a swirling looking hat, a lovely skirt knitted in Noro Silk Garden, and a pair of techy socks for a guy with computer related motifs on them. I’m a computer geek too! I’ll have to make me a pair of those socks!
