So I did not make it to the podium in the Knitting Olympics. Which is perfectly fine by me – I did manage to churn out more stitches than I have in a very long time. It felt good to get my knitting groove on again.

I want to thank everyone who signed up and I especially want to thank everyone who found the tip jar at the bottom of the sign up page and contributed. I promised Stephanie that if she mentioned the tip jar on her blog, I would send her half of the proceeds to be donated to Knitters Without Borders. The other half is going to defray my bandwidth costs – you’d be amazed at how much traffic came through the last two weeks.

I’m going to update the Knitting Olympics sign-up page at with a page where you can submit your e-mail address (if you supplied one when you first signed up) to indicate that you completed your project. Those who completed will get Franklin’s spiffy medal icon next to their names.

I’ll update again when I have the podium page finished.

Citius, Altius, Fortius, y’all.


There is now a podium page at Please feel free to mark yourself as having finished if, you know, you finished.
