The Winter Olympics are perfect for fiber arts.

In 2010 I spun and knit:  https://schoonoverfarm.wordpress.com/2010/03/01/olympics-final-race/

In 2014 I wove:  https://schoonoverfarm.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/sporting-events-and-fiber-arts/

I find weaving perfect for theWinter Olympics and have long looked forward to it.  So I took up my Gotland cloak sloth weaving that I had started one year ago when I smashed my finger:  https://schoonoverfarm.wordpress.com/2017/02/25/finger-update/

I love the weird variety of sports in the Winter Olympics, and I love all the women’s sports.  It is amazing to see what people can do with their bodies.  I have Tivoed all the events but will not have time to see them all but have seen a good variety of sports.  Next is bobsledding!

    Very interesting reading! I checked out the links you gave, including the one about your smashed finger! Whatever did you do to smash that poor finger? And is it back to normal now?

      It was crushed between a trailer and the truck bumper. It is still stiff, numb and cool. It does not hurt but gets uncomfortably cold when I am outside in cold weather.
