Olympic Knits

I was out of town this weekend, but finally got to watch the Opening Ceremonies last night. I love seeing all the teams come in and checking out their outfits. With the Winter Olympics, it is a sea of inspirational knits! Here are a few of my favorites.
andorra
Here is Andorra’s sweater. Doesn’t that just scream winter sports to you?
Slovakia-1
Slovakia used a great heart and spiral pattern on hats, mittens, scarves, vests and sweaters.

My favorite though, has to be the host country Russia. Look at those sweaters and hats! The design on these is so elaborate. Just gorgeous!

Finally, it’s not just great knits in the uniform, the Finnish slopestyle coach was knitting at the top of the hill before his athlete’s run!
nbcolympics
He says he is knitting a scarf for the Finnish team to take to the Rio Summer Olympics.

Do you have a favorite look from the Olympics so far?

    • I notice you didn’t pick the US team sweaters! I loved the Russian outfits too – I want one of those coats. But really what I want is to be dressed as a garden bench, like the girls introducing each team.

      • Oh Ros, those US ugly Christmas sweaters were so bad! And I hated the Polo logo so big on everything. Those woman had some interesting space age outfits going on for sure.

        • I made the mistake of saying how awful they were on FB. Turns out the VP of Ralph Lauren who is out in Sochi with the team is the grandson of a friend of mine. Whoops!

          I have just booked my hotel in Reykjavik for my trip in May. Getting excited about it now.

    • A Czech clothing company is the maker of the said sweaters for the Andorran team, however, I discovered that they do not ship to USA, at this time: KAMA in Czech Republic.
