While I was waiting for the Network to talk to me today, I finally worked out what my Knitting Olympics project will be. I'm going to knit a Baby Surprise Jacket (Rav link), as designed by the legendary Elizabeth Zimmerman.
Unlike the other patterns I considered, it will be a challenge - the construction is rather singular - but a quick browse of Ravelry tells me that completion is achievable in the shortened timescale I have available. (I won't be able to cast on until Friday, almost a week into the Olympics.) Also, it looks great striped, which will fit in with my plan to only use stash yarns. And, best yet, I don't have to buy the pattern - I have a copy of The Opinionated Knitter, the book in which it is published.
I wish I was at home so that I could cast on now! Hopefully the book will be easily accessible.
