Let the Games Begin at the end of June!

I am just a little excited for the upcoming games on Ravelry. I love any excuse for a fiber and yarn related challenge!

First up, spin with the Tour de France in the Tour de Fleece! Thanks to Rav user wyomingnot for organizing and heading up a Nerd Girl Yarns team. The Tour de Fleece runs along side with the Tour de France and starts Saturday June 30 and runs until Sunday July 22nd, 2012. It’s a great opportunity to challenge yourself as a spinner.

This is an Olympic year so the Ravelympics are set to run again this summer! There are events for all crafters and even an excuse to finally frog some of those languishing projects that you can’t bring yourself to finish. Ravelympics starts with the opening ceremonies at 7:30pm BST  27 July-12 Aug 2012. Join the NGY team here!

Come join us for the fun and camaraderie of it,  and there just might be some NGY prizes up for grabs for those who play along as part of the teams!
