U.S. Olympics Committee Apologizes to… Knitters

A group of knitters has received a cease-and-desist letter from the United States Olympics Committee for holding various knitting contests incorporated into a “Ravelympics,” which is allegedly contrary to the Olympics trademark rules.  The knitters were understandably unraveled, and received an apology from USOC for the needling tone of their letter.
