Olympic countdown timer...

My husband is pleased as punch with the response from his little weekend project: the official knitting olympics countdown timer. An endorsement from her highness Yarn Harlot is a very special honour indeed. We love her. Yeah, that's right, I said we. She makes me laugh so hard at times I can't help myself from reading her aloud to him (which I know he secretly enjoys, a wife knows these things ;0)

Click here to get the script/code for your blog.

Knit on (and don't panic, there's still plenty of time left)!


  1. I would *love* a copy of the script. Because you know, I'm not under enough pressure. ;)

    Great idea, really, that's just Evil Julie who is in the middle of her first lace shawl talking...

  2. Oh, and duh, my email is Brain malfunctioning from excessive knitting, obviously.

  3. hi anny--i would love a copy of the script and some directions on how to add it as well if you don't mind sharing--i would love to add it to the team clapotis page as well as to my own blog. what a great idea! my email is jackiesuejones at yahoo dot com. thanks!

  4. I love your sweater. Very nice. And I'm impressed with your progress!

    I had to tink back 10 or so rows on my socks last Friday. Never try and knit a challenging-to-you pattern during a Yarn Harlot talk! She was very funny. And distracting. I got to keep the ribbing, though, so at least some of my sock was knitted with a big bunch of fellow olympic knitters.

    I would really like a copy of the countdown timer code. Then I just have to figure out how to post it on my blog ;-)

    Thanks! And thanks for creating it!

  6. How fun!! I would like the script for a ticker... You (plural!) are genius
    thank you

  7. Your baby things are so cute! I am a Catholic mom of 6 finding nearly no time to knit. My challenge is to finish a pair of some kind of bootee's from Zoe's book before the olympics are over. I am sooo jealous of you all who have these cool yarn shops in your city! I can't even get the yarn. I want to knit some of these cool little things for my 10 week old. I am tired!!!
    Nice to meet you!

    That's so cute that your hubby likes the Harlot. Maybe I can convince my hubby to listen to me reading her book out loud. I will try. PS- Your man is way cool for making that script. I'd wouldn't mind the script as well. krista at the silentk dot com.

    oh me too!! how great is that timer!!

    Thank you thank you!


    LOVE IT!!

  37. Anny, I was thinking, rather than emailg more than 30 people with the script, you could put the script and instructions for use into a text file, put that file on the web and just include a link in your blog to that file? Might save you from spending the rest of the olympics emailing people :)
