Fair Isle February KAL
My parents bought this sweater in Scotland in 1970 when I was a very young girl.
Please join me at the new knit-along this month as we celebrate Fair Isle knitting and try our hands at colorwork. Whether you are a novice or an expert, we'd love to hear about your adventures in stranding.
All projects are welcome. Some of us will be starting sweaters. Perhaps you plan to try a traditional tam or a great mitten pattern. Maybe a colorwork purse sounds just right. But whether you are designing your own complex Fair Isle cardigan or just attempting a stranded iPod cozy, here's a place to meet friends, ask questions, learn new techniques and history, and share your progress.
There are no rules in the KAL. You may start a new project, get enough inspiration to pick up a UFO or finish a WIP, or design something on paper but not knit a single stitch.
At the end of the month, names of all participants will be put in a pot for a DRAWING FOR FABULOUS PRIZES donated by such vendors as Schoolhouse Press and Black Water Abbey!
