fair isle


These are my sister's birthday present! I am so excited about them! In the past few weeks my mom quickly showed me how to do Fair Isle. Basically I wanted to know where to hold the yarn. Then on an on-line video I taught myself to use both my right and left hand to hold the yarn. I love these! The pattern was really simple and a great way to learn. It is out of a book that I love: 60 Quick Knits with Cascade 220 yarn. Easy patterns and very nice, reasonably priced yarn. I am pleased with the color combination I chose. Now I'm trying to finish up a simple hat that is using just the light blue color yarn. That may not be done in time! Her birthday is monday but we are having a family dinner tomorrow.

Off to finish knitting!
Happy Saturday!

Beautiful! What a great gift. I wish I had the patience to do that. Knitting a rectangle was trying enough for me. LOL :)

Thank you! It was actually a lot of fun....just enough challenging that it kept me interested. Sarah: I think knitting an afghan is more challenging because they are so much larger!
