Knitting Olympics!

Here's the deal . . .

  • Pick a challenging Olympic knitting project (something challenging to you not impossible)
  • Start your Olympic knitting project during the opening ceremony of the Olympics
  • Watch coverage of the Olympics and knit - knit - knit - you are GOING FOR THE GOLD HERE
  • Imagine NBC doing a spot on the progress of your project, how hard it was to choose the project which is only overcome by the challenge of choosing the yarn - THIS IS BIG KNITTING DRAMA HERE
  • Finish your project before the end of the closing ceremony of the Olympics
  • Wear your Olympic knitting project proudly - you are a Knitting Olympian!

Join us for the kick off of the Knitting Olympics

Oh - so you say you don't knit? You quilt, crochet, sew, scrapbook . . . you get to have a whole different Olympic crafting event! Woo hoo!


  • What is the NeonApple Knitting Fund? I don't know, it sounds like a scam. How do I know this won't just be going to your Starbucks addiction?

  • I had the same question? Who gets the donation? BTW, the socks are awesome.

  • The donation would go to buy yarn and knitting supplies. Although I sometimes knit at Starbucks I promise I woudn't buy a cocoa with the funds.

    After all - I have people requesting me to make them scarves, mittens, and hats, and I don't ever have anyone saying "here let me get the yarn" -- after all you are going to spend hours and hours of work knitting and then give the item away.

    So help support the homemade knitted crafts movement!!
