Luge, baby!

Aaww yeeeaaah. I'm joining the Fair Isle Knit Team for the upcoming Olympic games...Have I knitted fair isle before? Only kinda. Am I scared? Yes. But, I'm excited! I can't believe that I was just going to knit socks and finish stuff up when I could be knitting on the edge of sanity instead. I've prepared Johnke—not that he has a clue. He looked at the pattern I've decided on (Teva Durham's Bias Fair Isle Pullover) and said, "Do you have to count? Or do you just do it? Hey, there are a lot of colors." I said, "Sweetie, I won't be talking to you for a while, you know." What I didn't say was, "At some point during the 'games' I'll probably lunge for your throat if you insist upon talking to me." I think that this sweater choice is like me entering the luge competition.
