How cool 😎 is Finnish snowboard coach Antti Koskinen, a man who has discovered for himself one of the perks of knitting !? This shot was taken yesterday while the coach was awaiting the run of team member Roope Tonteri in the slopestyle event. Now the news is going viral on Twitter, everyone wanting to know what Mr. Koskinen is making. According to the Olympic Team Finland, Finnish President Sauli Niinistö and his wife Jenni Haukio announced the birth of their son at the beginning of February, so the team is now knitting up squares for a blanket to welcome the baby. What a special gift, you’ve gotta love 💕 it!
A study published in the British Journal of Occupational Therapy found that there is a “significant relationship between knitting frequency and feeling calm and happy. More frequent knitters also reported higher cognitive functioning.” Knitting for the gold? Unfortunately, no, but racer Enni Rukajärvi did win a bronze.
