Obligatory Knit Olympics Post

By now, every knitter who keeps up with the blogsphere has heard about the Knit Olympics. We've pretty much chosen patterns, bought our yarns, and made our swatches. All that's left is choosing 'Teams'. So, why not one of our very own? It's a great way to show everyone what we're all about.

Green Knitting Team

Who can join?

Anyone who's event fits any of these categories:

  1. Project knit (in part or in whole) with organic* yarns
  2. Project knit (in part or in whole) with Fair Trade yarns
  3. Project knit (in part or in whole) with recycled yarns
  4. Project will aid in reduction of waste or recycling (i.e. 'string' market bags to avoid using the plastic supermarket ones)
Post your comments here, describing your green project, and download our button to your own server. Deirdre and I hope that you will also explore the 'blog, and find other things that you like here.

I will update the blog with our team members.**

* For the chemists out there: Yes, I know that in chemical jargon the term 'organic' would encompass pretty much anything one could possibly knit with. Agricultural jargon is equally well established, and there should be no ambiguity in this context. The term originally meant 'deriving from organs' in any case.

** In the interest of full disclosure, I have a confession to make. Green Knitting is not, yet, a habit for me. I will be a cheerleader for this event, and use all of you as an inspiration to improve my own knitting. It's a learning process for all of us.
