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.

  1. Hah! I love that pattern. Amusingly enough – I rock at fair isle, and can’t do intarsia to save my life. Perhaps we should confer sometime… 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing the finished project – Go Jenn Go!!


  2. Good luck with your project! That sounds incredibly ambitious, but I’m sure you can do it. I love the idea of the chinchillas. How cute!
