I Love Fair Isle

Off to a great start! 

A little more.... Just minutes later!

And more ...  An hour later!

All done!!

I really do love stranded knitting. Any sort of colourwork knitting really speaks to me but the technique of Fair Isle is something that makes my heart sing. I really think I could knit a full sweater sized garment with the entire design (not just the yoke or edgings) done in stranded knitting. 

I'm not sure that there are a lot of great designs out there that have this that would actually LOOK nice enough but ... Maybe someday. 
So in the meantime I'll have to be satisfied with knitting a fair isle hat. This design was so much fun to knit. It practical knit itself. The colour gradient yarn makes the fair isle extra special I think.
