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.

I looked last night on Ralph Lauren's website and it was still there. There must have sold out during the night or early this morning. It was cute! LOL And the least expensive item they had for sell. It was $75. I loved the cardigan, but it is $385 and doesn't come in my size :**(

Loved the ceremony though! It was beautiful! I loved the 2-D/3-D whales :)

I loked the hat, too. You'll just have to design your own pattern for it, or wait for it to show up on Ravelry. :-)
