With more than two years to next Olympics, the sporting knitters can be happy about the Soccer World Championships (In two weeks!). And, of course, there's a couple of challenges announced already.
Yarnmonkey has a Knitting World Cup
and here's a Swedish version of the same, Fotbollsstickning. A lot more relaxed :-)
I am not the least interested in soccer. Olympics is one thing, but soccer... nah. Perhaps because Finland is not playing... Nah, I am just not interested.
One thing I could think of knitting is a supporter scarf... Whether it is for Gryffindor or your country, it's always an appreciated thing. I know my Danish husband would love a scarf in red and white :-)
(The happy lady with her 450 feet long supporter scarf is Christina Brockway, passionate supporter of Liverpool and a passionate knitter. Inspirational? Or perhaps a warning example LOL)
