Here’s a photo I took Friday evening before the opening ceremonies. My equipment was assembled and I was ready to go!
I’m going to be knitting Franklin Habit’s Prairie Spring Tunic from the premiere Fall/Winter 2009 issue of St-Denis. I’m knitting it size 2, using the same colors as I needed it to be neutral- it is going to be a baby shower gift for my cousin’s wife. They have a chinchilla as a pet (and used to have my chinchilla too) so I will be adapting the white blips in the Fair Isle section to be chinchillas. If I have time I plan to knit a stuffed chinchilla toy as well. It is an Olympic challenge for me partly because of my time constraints, and partly because to date I find my Fair Isle colorwork sucks. I rock at intarsia, but I’m not comfortable with stranding the yarn without puckering or pulling.
