Anyone who switched on their television at the weekend will probably have caught some coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, with a range of sports including snowboarding and mogul skiing having taken place over the past couple of days.
However, you might have been forgiven for doing a double take if you saw the men's slopestyle finals on Saturday (February 8th).
When the cameras zoomed in on Finland's two-time world champion Roope Tonteri as he prepared to carry out his final run, they also caught his coach Antti Koskinen - and he was nonchalantly doing some knitting.
The professional stood next to his charge with what appeared to be a scarf knitted in cream chunky yarn on green needles. As the team spotted the world's media focusing on them, they all gave a friendly wave, with Koskinen breaking off from his crafting to give Tonteri a fist bump.
We have heard lots of stories lately about how knitting helps people relax, so perhaps this was his way of ensuring the pressure of an international tournament didn't raise his stress levels so high that they affected Tonteri's chances.
However, it is one of the most unusual places we have noted people knitting - we'd love to know if you have ever spotted a more surprising crafty location than the ski slopes of Sochi!
It comes after a recent Google trends report found that internet searches for 'knitting' increased by 30 per cent in Britain last year when compared to 2012. There has also been a 430 per cent rise in searches for 'knitting for beginners' in the last five years.
Saturdays are typically the busiest day and spikes in searching activity often correspond with cold snaps and other bad weather as people look for something to keep them occupied inside.
Perhaps this is how Koskinen got into creating woolly scarves?
