Join me at the Fair Isle
But I became fascinated by the sweater in the new VK, known simply as #21. It has one fair isle sleeve and one plain sleeve, and a little bit of fair isle on the bodice. So I figured I would give the bodice fair isle a try and see how it went, and if it went OK I'd do the whole kit 'n' kaboodle.
And I think it went OK. I'm using a totally different yarn, in totally different colors, wtih a totally different gauge. So there's a bit of, oh what should we call it, improvision in the pattern. But I think it's going pretty well. I'm going to try the sleeve, if it doesn't work I can always do a solid color sleeve.
The colors look good (imho). Stay tuned!
