While Goodnight was working on some homework, I had a chance to browse the Internet for some Olympic knit fashions. What else would a knitter do, eh?
The first thing I always have to check for is Team Norway’s official sweater by Dale of Norway. Yarn shops usually get the knitting patterns for the Dale Olympic sweaters. I’ve got some going back a ways to previous Olympics.
Personal note to Goodnight: Sweetie, your mother knit you a little baby hat from the Nagano pattern when you were a very tiny baby!
The second scoop I had to check was the low-down on the Torch-bearer Mittens from the Hudson Bay company.
There have been a couple of hot hats over the last week, too. The first one was a hat Lindsey Vonn has been wearing around Vancouver. It’s from Ralph Lauren.
Turns out to be from the boys collection and it had matching mittens. Pricey, too! Yet they sold out less than 12 hours after they were revealed.
The second hot hat was the one TEAM USA wore for the Opening Ceremony. Loved the moose! That was also by Ralph Lauren. They are upwards of $400.00 today on eBay!
There are a few other classy looking knit items that I’ve spotted while watching the Olympics, but I wasn’t taking notes. I should have, I guess . . . but I was knitting.
