In horse racing or more specifically, Thoroughbred racing there is a term called Triple Crown. It's an accomplishment that few horses and their riders achieve when they can win all three of the main races. Er, that may be the most knowledge I have of horses gathered from various movies. I'm an Alpaca gal not or horse person so I'll relate it as I know it.
I am on my way to achieving my own Triple Crown of Fiber Arts. I am currently in Tournament 5 of Nerd Wars where I am competing on Team Precious for the second time. I just finished the Tour de Fleece where I spun my July away with the Team of Wonder - THE Alpaca Fiber Lovin' Team which I created three years ago and our team has just grown to a fabulous group of spinners and finally, tonight, when the Olympic Torch officially gets lit, I will start my projects for two different teams on the Ravellenics on Ravelry (FKA as Ravelympics but due to politics with the real Olympics we had to change our name --Grrrr) by knitting and spinning for Team Nerd Wars and Team Knitting Dead. Seriously, I am gluten for Fiber Arts Overload. Heck no! There can't be such a thing...is there?
The final days of the TdF!
I finished my MOVING TARGET socks! I am super pleased with these. They met the requirement for my 50% Dissertation in Nerd Wars so now I need to knit a second pair. It took me from June 10 until July 24 to complete. I am going to attempt to knit the second pair for "The Games" as part of Sock Put but I think I may be a wee bit ambitious. Regardless, it will motivate me to work on them.
