    my gosh I can’t wait to see your sweaters.

    maybe you would have time to knit a toque > http://store.hbc.com/scarves/canadian-olympic-team-unisex-touring-toque/prodRFVAAF908.html …?

    I really like the garter st collar of the fake Cowichan Jacket ;)

    Incredible stamina, Lolly. They should hand out medals for this!

    I hear you about getting ahead of yourself. It’s so hard not to with so much inspiration out there. Love the dark blue yarn for your sweater.

    The official patch is SO COOL–as a child were you a Girl Scout, by any chance?

    Odd place to put those moose heads. Or are they bagpipes?. What were they thinking?

    Oh, I can’t wait to see more of your sweaters! :)

    Good luck with your sweaters! I also love “Cowichan-inspired” sweater pattern. Jared Flood has one in his new book and I can’t wait to make it.

    Woah, you’re doing great! Go go go. How is the yarn working out so far?

    Those new designs are fun too. Thanks for sharing them.

    I can’t wait to see both Kris’ and your sweaters, AND what you come up with in the Cowichanesque” department. You are an Olympic sweater knitting machine! They should turn that into an Olympic event.

    Steve Yzerman… be still my heart!

    I knew I left too soon — there’s my empty seat! I have to admit I’m starting to feel how humungous a job this sweater is going to be, such tiny needles and soooo many miles of stockinette! I’m trying to hang in there, but other projects beckon…. I’ll just have to keep watching your website for progress and maybe it will motivate me!

    you amaze me!! ahh! I cannot wait to see these sweaters… on tiny needles :-) I know you can do it! I already give you a 10.0!!

    It is taking all my will power to not go buy the materials and start one of the Olympic sweaters. I absolutely love the Canadian gear. I was born in the wrong country, sigh…

    I’ll be your Olympic knitting cheerleader! Can’t wait to see the finished product—which I know will happen in plenty of time.

    And WHAT is that amazing swatch book you’ve got there?! (I have a think for swatch books…)

    Thanks for posting that article about the Cowichan controversy. I can’t believe only 25 people were going to knit 700-800 sweaters. That is bananas!! What was their timeline??

    Good luck on your olympic sweaters. Looking great!

    Go Lolly!!

    Knitting together with others makes this craft so much fun. Your Dale sweaters are going to look gorgeous, loving the blue!

    Wow, I thought I had an original idea, to knit an olympic sweater. I hope you will share the pattern.
