As you all know, The Yarn Harlot has issued a challenge. Not only is she challenging our knitting bravado, she is asking us to put our collective sanity on the line for her amusement (sure, she’ll say it’s so we can feel some sense of accomplishment, but really, she wants to see us squirm). And against every instinct they possess, many have decided to take up this challenge. But you just can’t do it alone. That's why Bookish Wendy, Obsession Kellee, and Stitchy McYarnpants have decided to co-sponsor Team Boston in the first Knitting Olympics.
What does it take to join Team Boston? If you've got yarn and a wicked pissah accent, you’re in. If you live within, let’s say, an hour of Boston, you are hereby a Boston Knitter. We’ve set up this team blog so participants can upload photos and update whenever they want! Share your progress or disappointing lack thereof. Delight in the thrill of your teammates victories or relish in the agony of their defeat (and in the case of sock knitters, da feet). But mostly, improve your odds of actually finishing something using the tried and true method of mob rule.
If you’ve joined the Harlot’s Olympics and want to participate in our little support group, comment directly to this post OR send an email to teambostonknitters at Yahoo dot com (you’ll have to turn that into an actual email address. Consider it your first test as a team member).
-your first name (or however you'd like to appear in the sidebar)
-blog name and address if you have one, though it's not necessary
-what you're knitting, if you've decided (if you've already posted a photo of what you're making, include that link).
We’ll reply with info that will allow you to become a Guest Poster. Since humans are actually dispensing the invitations manually, you probably won’t get an immediate response, but rest assured, we'll get to you as soon as possible.
We've also created an email address for any questions you may have for us. It's teambostonknitters at Yahoo dot com (hey! that's the same address as above, we're geniuses). And remember, if you don't want to join the Olympics but still want to take part in the fun, you can join Team Boston's Cheerleading Squad. You know you want that cute little cheerleader button on your blog. You do. You know you do.
Have fun, go nuts, we'll be posting more information, updates and tweaking the site as the days go by.
