Olympic Hat

Yahooey! Check out Clever Knits for her version of the Olympic hat. It is also on Ravelry under Olympic hat. No offense to the original designer, but the designer hat is nowhere to be found for purchase that I can see right now. I just love how quickly Clever Knits took the time to put a pattern out there for this particular hat and for all the knitters and fans of the 2010 Olympics. May make a slight change to the cast-on part of the pattern and maybe the finishing to make it my own. Now I will wait and see when the cabled sweater will appear. There are other olympic-style patterns on Ravelry for all to enjoy as well.

Happy knitting to all during the olympics.

2010 Winter Olympics - Vancouver

So I watched the opening ceremony last night for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. I was so excited by the presentation, but saddened by the loss of an athlete yesterday. Hopefully, the other athletes will proceed in their individual competition and not let his loss bring down their spirits. May the spirit of the lost athlete be with them all and may they compete safely.

I did notice something in the opening ceremony worn by the US athletes -- the knit hat. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. So I checked the designers web-site and did not see it for sale. Yes, I want that hat. Hopefully, I didn't miss it. Probably not the only one that wants that hat. Wonder if the designer has been inundated with calls and requests for the hat and the sweater. We'll see what pops up on the site within the next few weeks.

Oh well, need to check the viewing schedule to see what I can watch today.
