Yarnbox is participating in Ravellenics!

We registered as Team Yarnbox for the Ravellenics, whoohoo!
What is Ravellenics? Good question! It is a knit along with the summer Olympic games. You compete with teammates to finish projects in time with the different events that are happening during the summer games.
