Fair Isle in Five...
Even I'm surprised.
It's incredibly addictive.
You just want to keep knitting upward to get to the next color section and pattern to see how your choices are going to meld together.
I took Sheila Joyne's 'I can't believe I'm Fair Isle Knitting' class on April 12. The second class is April 26 and we were supposed to have the ribbing on our hats done.
Apparently I'm a Fair Isle over-achiever
So I started my house on the 15th and finished it the 20th.
It was after I finished the anchor section that I saw in Sheila's pattern instructions that she suggest using markers to divide up each repeat.
That would have made it easier for certain, but I really only had to back it out a couple times and only a few stitches at that...
I finished it off yesterday.
All that is left is weaving in a hot mess of ends and a light blocking, really more of a relaxing bath followed by some drying in the middle of the living room...
The mornings and evenings are still chilly enough that I can still get some wear out of it before summer!
