if you’ve been hanging around the Ravensphere, you will remember that during the Tour de France a bunch of Friends of Threeravens organized our own Tour de Fleece event, Team Nevermore. Now that the great Winter Games are upon us, we are doing it again! This time, it is the Nevermore Winter Games, and you can play along! All the details will be gathered on a permanent page link, but here are the details to get you started:
What are the Nevermore Winter Games?
A chance to challenge ourselves to create more knitted, crocheted, handspun, woven, and felted projects in a community atmosphere. We will have various “events” that competitors can participate in together – but the real competition is against ourselves, to push ourselves to greater heights of creativity and production. The main point? To make beautiful things, together, as a community.
When do we start?
The Games start on February 7th 2014 and run through February 23rd 2014. We will have an online “start your project” party during the Opening Ceremonies for those who want to join in then – as your hosts will be Christiane and George and they are on EST, that will be the official guide for timelines, which you as a participant may adjust as needed. Opening Ceremonies will be happening on NBC via an 8 hour delay, starting at 7:30 pm EST. The official schedule for watching Olympic Games while playing Nevermore Winter Games is here: http://www.nbcolympics.com/results-schedule
When do we end?
During the Closing Ceremonies on February 23rd.I am sure we’ll have another online party!
What can we make? How do we play?
There will be a list of events to participate in! They will cover a variety of skills and levels, and should be both fun and challenging. Please feel free to try in any or all events, as you feel able. One project per event, please.
To participate in an event, you will declare your entry when the event is announced, and post photos as you “cross the finish line.” Many events are multi-skill [knitting, crochet, spinning, etc] so your project may cross the line with something entirely different. That’s okay!
Prizes will be awarded for all Events during our Closing Ceremonies. All prizes will be awarded with the help of the Random Number Generator, for the most fair Games. This means that anyone who plays could win! All prizes are awarded from members of the group, so this is truly a Community affair.
Interested? You can join up by declaring your events at https://www.facebook.com/groups/nevermoreforevermore/ – and all the details are available at https://www.threeravens.net/events/winter-games-2014/
Go for the gold! [fiber, that is!]
