That Weird Red Hybrid Thing
On an unrelated note, I'm trying to decide if I'll do the Ravellenic Games this year. I've knit along with the Olympics every year since the Yarn Harlot came up with the idea. I don't always do the "official" KAL (and if I do a project or two for the games I probably won't participate officially this year either, primarily because I don't feel like jumping through a lot of hoops right now, I just want to knit). I think my indecision is based partly on these games themselves: I really feel like the IOC and Brazil have dropped the ball this time around, at the athlete's expense. The advertisers, the IOC, and the other commercial interests will walk away with a paycheck, but the athletes are being housed in unsafe dormitories and asked to compete in unsafe and downright disgusting conditions. Survival Skills isn't an Olympic event. There are a few events I will watch, but at this point I'm not planning on my All-Olympics-All-The-Time viewing schedule. On the other hand, I will be knitting anyway during the time the games are going, even if I'm watching Netflix instead of the games. I'm obviously still waffling about what I want to do.
Anyone else going to knit with the games or still deciding?
