Olympic Knitting?

Well the Olympics have started.  Last night saw the Ladies Football competition kicking off.  We will of course be watching as many events as possible from the comfort of our living room.  This will give me an excellent opportunity / excuse to sit and just knit & crochet (not at the same time - but then again maybe!).

It would obviously be appropriate to make something Olympic related and to this end, Deramores are offering a free knitting pattern for an Olympic swimmer.

I may knit her up as an Athlete rather than a swimmer, swap the swimming costume for a running vest and shorts.  If I'm in the mood I could knit a relay team - but probably not.


  1. She is so cute. I like the fact she looks a little over weight. Not quite an Olympic medal winner, I think!

  2. So exciting to have the Olympics in your home country! I was very proud, as a Canadain when we won the hockey tournament in Vancouver.

    And I have to say, if you can crochet and knit at the same time, you would have to get and honourary Olympic medal for that event!

    I hope you enjoy all the events you will get to see, and mostly live. I'll be recording a lot of the rowing if it's not on at a decent hour here in the US/Canada.


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
