Imbolc 2006

You, too, can join the Team Angstylvania knitting athletes.

[Where's Angstylvania?]

Torn between a strong tradition of apathy and their ingrained bureaucracy, the Angstylvanian Parliament would like to announce that Angstylvanian knitting athletes may now choose to register with the government. Olympic medal winners will be entered into a drawing for a prize package of two free stickers and all the Lion Brand Wool-Ease we can possibly unload upon you. Follow the four steps below.

Step 1: Read more about the 2006 Knitting Olympics and register with the Yarn Harlot if you want to be included in her list.

Step 2: Register with the Angstylvanian government by emailing or posting a comment to the blog with the following information:

• Name
• Email address
• Blog/Website (optional)
• Knitting Olympics Project
• Fifty words or less (preferably in poetry form) on how your love for your homeland of Angstylvania brings you so much sorrow and yet so much pride

Step 3: Display Angstylvanian pride!
