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

[Where's Angstylvania?]

In traditional fashion, the Angstylvanian government has failed to meet international deadlines for its athletes to officially compete in the Ravelympics. Athletes are encouraged to register with an official Ravelympics team if they want to compete for whatever it is that the Ravelympics is offering. However, Angstylvanian athletes can still indicate to their government that they are participating (on another team or not) by posting in the Team Angstylvania Ravelry group, and their government promises to reward a random medaling athelete with whatever they can scrape up by the time the Ravelympics ends.

To join Team Angstylvania, register with the Department of Overexerting Oneself by logging into Ravelry and becoming a member of our Team Angstylvania Ravelry group. Those who finish and provide a photo of their finished object will be eligible to win a goodie basket provided by The AntiCraft and our favorite LYS, ReBelle. Yes, this means you have to have a Ravelry account. No execptions. Get in the freakin' queue already! Yes, this means it is limited to knitting and crochet. We didn't make Ravelry; don't complain to us.

To officially participate in the Ravelympics, read more about the 2008 Knitting Olympics and follow Ravelry's instructions about joining an official team.

You do not have to officially participate in the Ravelympics to joing Team Angstylvania. All Team Angstylvania members who finish their challenge (whether or not they "medal" by Ravelympic standards) and submit a photo of their finished object will be entered into the goodie basket drawing. Photos can be posted to the Team Angstylvania Ravelry group or emailed to
