I Want to Knit

Question 10: Here's an odd sort of question...What Olympic event would best describe your knitting/knitting style?

Gack- I don't know all the events! Yannick and I have been watching each evening the last few nights, though, so if I would only be able to pick from the beach volleyball, swimming and gymnastics routines...

If I go over the list of Summer Olympic sports listed on the official website, I guess my knitting style would be "Artistic Gymnastics".

Here's an excerpt of the discipline's origins, from the same website:

"When gymnastics began in ancient Greece more than 2000 years ago, the gymnasium was the centre of cultural activity. Men gathered there not only to practise sport, but to understand art, music and philosophy. The Greeks believed symmetry between the mind and body was possible only when physical exercise was coupled with intellectual activity.

Today, gymnastics is often termed the ultimate combination of sport and art, but the idea is nothing new. Plato, Aristotle and Homer heartily advocated the strengthening qualities of gymnastic activity. It is a philosophy that can be found in much of their work."

A combination of sport and art where physical exercise is coupled with intellectual activity...sounds about right to me!

    Cool answer! I think I would be trampoline.

    I'd probably be rowing myself. Steady, un-original, yet gets the job done :)
