If you’ve got your hands on Simply Knitting issue 95, you should have received the free booklet of bonus patterns taken from Carol Meldrum’s genius Knitlympics.
As it happens, Carol’s not the only designer inspired by sporting prowess, as Laura Long’s book The Olympknits has taken the web-world by storm with a spin-off website.
Highlights definitely include the humorous caption competitions and a fabulous film starring the animated, knitted athletes!
We can’t resist the amazing athletes, brought to life by director Alan B. Baker. From boxing to fencing, rowing to sychronised swimming, it's all there!
Our favourites may well be the taut and toned cyclist (pictured at the top of this post), but it’s so hard to choose! Which knitting sporting star would you award gold to?
