Here is the Felted Fair Isle Bag I will knit in the 2006 Knitting Olympics. I will be on the US Fair Isle Team. We will cast on the night of the Winter Olympics opening ceremonies on February 10th and must be finished before the flame goes out on February 26th. That’s 16 days, and the project must be a challenge for us to finish in that amount of time. Think this will do the trick? I, personally, think I have lost my fricken mind! Check out the 2006 Olympic link on this site to get more details and enter the games. This particular pattern comes from Interweave Knits.

  1. Ooooh, not crazy at all! I love it! What yarn are you using? And which issue is that in? Wait. You may have answered these already. Let me look> humming to fill in the void:
    Nope. Didn’t find it.
    YOU can do it!

  2. Sandy, I am making you my official olympic knitting coach!!!
    Thanks for all the encouragement:)
    I am doing this back in Patton’s Classic Marino. Some of the colors will be a little different, so it won’t be an exact match, but I think it will look very nice with what I have. I got the pattern from Interweave Knits. They had a promotion in Jan. where people who subscribe to their newsletter could have access to a paid account for a month. That’s where I found the pattern. So it is in January 2006 issue. I’ll email you with more details if I can find them. Are you in the olympics, too? If so, what are you knitting?
