Upon learning about the wool bouquets which are being presented to medalists in the Winter Olympics, I went searching for the details. Are they knit or crochet? (Crochet, although there's no shortage of articles describing them as knit.) Who made them? (Volunteers were recruited for the project, and the bouquets were designed by Li Meili.) Why crochet instead of the more usual fresh flowers? (They're an interpretation of the "Shanghai Bouquet," which dates from the mid-19th century, and are intended to express an ethos of sustainability.) How many were made? (1251 medalists will be presented with one during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.)
My favorite podium photo featuring the bouquets so far is this moving portrait of speed skater Erin Jackson. (Also viewable here.)
This alllllmost finished sweater (Vár, in Lettlopi, with Aerial carried along for the colorwork only) brought to you by one Superb Owl, plus the Winter Olympics Women's Slopestyle finals, and a bit of the Men's Halfpipe finals. All that remains is the neckline ribbing, and a lovely bath. Blocked photos next week!
The next question is: do I wind some yarn to cast on the Photography Shawl, or set an abitrary progress goal on the Curl cowl (in Woolstok Light and Aerial Color) to achieve first? Big decisions!
