Jessica from the Knitting Brooklyn Podcast had reached out for help to raise money for her cousin Julie's classroom. However, in less than a week Julie reached her goal. Go knitters!!
Hop on the Party Bus
We had quite a week last week with the controversy over the United States Olympic Committee's cease & desist letter to Ravelry regarding the Ravelympics. They did apologize (twice) and the Ravelympics was renamed Ravellenic Games.
For those who need a little boost to get some WIPs finished before the Ravellenics begin at the end of July. Join us over on the Commuter Knitter Podcast Ravelry group. Each FO posted in the FO thread before July 15th will be eligible for the prize drawing. Prizes TBD.
Note - you do not have to participate in the Ravellenics in order to be in the finish-along - it is open to anyone who needs a little boost to get the WIPS finished :-)
If you're looking for a Ravellenics Team (or if you are a spinner and are looking for a Tour de Fleece Team) come join Team Sasquatch - a large group of podcasters and podcast fans. Lots of fun!!
