08-08-08! None of us are free until ALL of us are free!

Lucky day? We'll see. The Olympics kick off today so this morning I cast on my project (entry) for the Ravelympics. I chose to enter the Shawl Relay with a cross into the Lace Weight Long Jump as I'll be knitting a shawl with lace weight yarn. I had originally started the Goddess Knits Anniversary Mystery Shawl at least a month ago but due to an error, I ripped it out. This morning I started again in full force! I'm not sure why I sign up for these things other than they are free and there are prizes (I never win!) but it's fun.

In other news, I followed a link from this blog I read which got me here. Again another contest but this one also comes with a message. Pippi of Pippikneesocks, yarn dyer extraordinaire has created a colorway based on the Tibetan Prayer Flags to increase awareness that Tibet is not free. Check out this link too for more information.
