Turns out, changing my Olympic Knitting project after that first day was a damned fine idea. The Child’s First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush was demanding and challenging for me. It was also, however, project I could complete in the alloted time without injuring myself.
I finished the socks with a few days to spare. Time enough for the socks to visit the Olympic Village. While there they spent some time being worn by a few of the athletes competing in the games.
On the luge track.
Doing a belly flop.
At the women’s figure skating short program.
Scoring at the hockey game.
Me with my Olympic Gold medal. This feels great!
