There were, of course, some notable knits in the Olympic opening ceremonies. Really, what good is a winter olympics without knitwear? I combed a multitude of blog posts and *news* articles critiqueing the fashion statements made by the various nations' designers, which revealed to me that opinions are likeassh- navels; everybody has one.
The knits (hover over each photo for my comment):
Andorran sweaters (that look Norwegian to my Norwegian eye).
Estonian hats and mittens (of course).
On behalf of the knitters of the world, all I can say is, Show us the patterns!
* I almost didn't include the USA because those sweaters are so eye-blazingly ugly, but the senile aunt comment made me do it.
