Ravelry is a website dedicated to lovers of fiber arts, namely knitters, crocheters, spinners, etc. There are over 2 million members, and it's a great place to find patterns, info on fibers or yarn, and connect with others who have similar interests. They are hosting the 2012 Ravellenic Games (it used to be the Ravelympics but they got a cease and desist letter from the USOC, don't ask), an event where you pick a project and cast-on at the beginning of the opening ceremonies and try to complete before the end of the closing ceremonies. There are events for spinners and stash busters and anything else you can think of. It's kind of awesome.
