To ease the Olympics mania, we suggest you pick up a hobby to get you through the next few weeks. And what could be more relaxing than knitting? Textile and knitting expert extraordinaire Carol Meldrum has put together Knitlympics – a book made solely of knitting patterns inspired by famous Olympians. Keep up your Olympic morale by creating your very own Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett or for a more contemporary icon, try a woolly Usain Bolt. With 20 athletes to choose from and a selection of accessories, you can make your own Olympic village right in your backyard. Carly-Ann Clements
