Finland's knitting passion is latest Pyeongchang yarn

2018-02-14 21:53
The Finnish snowboard team at the Olympics in Pyeongchang are using the soothing effects of knitting when the Olympic pressure becomes too great. "It's a really Finnish thing to do, so you don't need to talk to anyone while doing it,” snowboard coach Antti Koskinen said. "It takes all your concentration and effort, and then people realize you're actually doing something important because you're concentrating so hard, so no unnecessary chitchat needed." Grinning as he continued to knit a blue woolen square, Koskinen said that around half of the 102-strong team is knitting at the games. Credit: Reuters
