Nicely dine Moira. I like the composition with the weight lifter set against the blurred out BG of the beach. The colours and detail are spot on.

Love it!

Thanks everyone, and particularly thanks Trev for the UA - that was a lovely surprise!
Have a good weekend, folks. I have a non-knitting silly shot from Saltburn for tomorrow...

Good composition Moira.
I like the space given to push his weights into.

Is that a bulge I see in his trousers? Must be the steroids. Wink (Sorry to lower the tone - it's just my sense of humour - no offence intended! And, I trust, none taken.)

These figures are correct in every anatomical detail Bob, this is knitted journalism! And don't worry, I'm usually the one who lowers the tone...
Thanks again everyone. We are heading out this morning for an Open Day down at the Riverside Visitors' Centre. Which is why it's raining for the first time in weeks...

As I said to Bill....this knitter, or knitters, should get an Olympic medal. These are phenomenal and take hours of work I'm sure.

I'm getting very attached to these little works of art, would love to see them for myself, it amazes me how well they emulate the action of each sport.

Wonderful in all respects.
What would a wooly man stuff down his trousers if not his wooly sacks, I wonder, Maybe you should ask Woolybill if you don't already know???

This image has given me a real lift Moira, and it has obviously helped to take the weight off Alsopdigitaart's shoulders! This series has been hugely enjoyable to view
