  Monday Morning Mirth  

they call it a Bird’s Nest, I call it yarn…

Am I the only one who thinks the Bejing Stadium, where 91,000 viewers can enjoy Olympic events, looks a lot like a ginormous ball of yarn?

I just finished winding a skein with my handy swift and ball winder and by gum, it sure looks a lot like what you see above!!

Seeing this, and the fact that Chicago’s very own Captain is the Captain, I (bonnemarie) was compelled to join Team Cellular Peptide Cake (yo, Star Trek: Phantasms) as part of the Ravelympics 2008! Competition. Event: WIPs Wrestling!

Ye (the 5258 above and all others around the World watchin’ and swatchin’) who are about to hear the starter pistol, I salute YOU!

    Hey Bonne Marie! Check out the Coke commercial of the “birds nest”. It’s adorable.

    LOVE the Coke commercial! The stadium is cool, but the swimmer in me prefers the bubble building (aquatic center)
