I can’t believe how fast the fair isle sweater I’m working on is going. I thought it would get a bit tedious between the patterns but it hasn’t. The sweater has grown a lot in a short time.
Due to the unusually warm weather I was able to photograph my progress outside in the back yard. Normally that would be unheard of in February. I can’t say I miss the freezing cold temperatures we normally have this time of year, but something just isn’t right when it’s this warm out. All the little furry critters are confused, thinking it’s spring already. I want to tell them ‘there’s no food out yet, go back to bed!’
I was so happy to start the fair isle sweater that I purchase yarn for way back in the Fall. That is until I realized how frustrating it is to make a mistake and have to rip back. I’ve already made three errors, 2 of which required ripping back. The other mistake is an outer stitch right on the seam so it’s not going to show.
That said I can’t wait to get home at the end of the day and get working on it. The merino yarn is so fine and soft I imagine myself a wee spider spinning a beautiful web.
You’ve probably noticed the site has changed. I felt it was time to update the look and my hope is make the time to add some more free patterns and a knitting resources page.
