Instead, I knit these (pattern here from a post at Craftster by sunflowerfairy):
(of course I knit... you didn't think a day off from Olympic knitting meant a day without knitting!!! Come on!!!)
(pair 1 of 2)
In honor of the first day of Olympic Men's Hockey... well, not entirely. I've started at least 2 other of these skate-booties for my newest nephews, but I can't find one of them and the second one ended up huge. I'm hoping to go up to visit with them this weekend, if my company gives us Family Day off on Monday.
I have one more pair to make (twins!) and then I'll be back on track with the Olympic knitting. Hopefully.
