While the Ravelympians and Olympic Knitters run to the corner store for more Band-Aids for their sore fingers, the rest of the world seems to have discovered Olympic-themed knitwear!
(Didja catch those great moose-knit hats and Canadian Maple Leaf mittens on the athletes during the Parade of Nations last weekend?)
Here's an article about the objects themselves.
And there has got to be a designer out there whipping up a pattern for the rest of us to knit!
Meanwhile, I'm about to finish the first piece of my first Olympic project: Gatsby's almost got a back!
Quick follow-up, moments later:
Hudson's Bay Company and Ralph Lauren break the sad news to the non-knitting world: the Opening Ceremonies Hats and Mitts are SOLD OUT!
Crack out the needles, knitters - the world needs us!
Ah - HA!
Someone's done it...
(But not in fingering weight, alas. Might have to tweak these.)
