Olympic Medals

Ok…so this post isn’t exactly about Olympic medals.  I had to find a way to make you look though, didn’t I?

If you want to know what this post is really about, take a look at the following…

That, my friends, is my official badge.  It means I am a Ravthlete.

Don’t know what this is?

Well, you might remember that in previous posts, I made a couple of references to the Ravelympics.  Ravelry is an online forum for fiber artists.  It is an incredible resource to use if you are looking for patterns, projects, and camaraderie from fellow artists.

To receive medals, fiber artists (I use this term to refer to knitters, crocheters, and spinners) complete projects in various “events.”

This was my first Ravelympics, and I received THREE medals!

The first one was for my Big Seed Stitch Pom Pom Hat.

Next, I received a medal for the Granny Square Dish Cloth

And last, but not least, was my medal for the Frog Prince

If you’re not on Ravelry, I highly encourage you to join up.

Participating in this year’s Ravelympics was so much fun, and I look forward to the Summer Olympics in a couple of years when I can work towards more bling!
