After the “Ravelympics” debacle, we weren’t sure what, if anything, we could post when it came to summer-games-inspired crafts. But we think we’ve found at least one way to celebrate.

One of our friends recently joined up with RecordSetter, an online database of all sorts of fun, crazy, and impressive world records. So we scoured their site to see what crafting records have already been claimed in the hopes that it would inspire some of our readers to go for the gold this summer. I don’t know if I could stake a claim to largest pot ever thrown, but I could probably throw the largest pot for an iguana to drink out of while in a Prius. Think I’m crazy? You haven’t seen some of these records.
