Big O Games Knitting

I found some lovely examples of knitting today at my local yarn shop – in support of those ‘Big O’ games that are coming to London next week. It is nice to see that handknitters support local and global sports and use their creative talents to create works of art.

A warning though – if you do knit a doll and put shorts on it, or create other works of art that are in support of your favourite sports events, please be aware of and respect copyright rules.

Unfortunately one of the well known knitting groups ran into some confrontation with the O committee due to copyright infringement rules.
