To tell you the truth, it became a bit of an obsession. There was a teeny, tiny problem though and that was that I had never done Fair Isle knitting before. Then a brainwave struck! I wondered if I could persuade Julie to help me out when she came over for lunch the other day. I might've hogged her attention for a while, I'll admit it *wink wink*
After worrying about tension and not comprehending top and bottom strands, I am now the proud wearer of a garment that I actually knitted myself. I have to confess that I haven't knit anything bigger than a hat or a scarf since I was at college over 27 years ago, and that was a purple mohair number that proved too darn itchy to wear, so I am feeling fairly triumphant about this particular finished item.
All details over on Ravelry.
Now it seems my obsession has moved onto other things and I am truly inspired by Kristina's beautifully neat sock knitting to pick up the dpn's again ...
