A LITTLE BIT OF FAIR ISLE
I abandoned a recent wrist warmer project yesterday. I don't abandon often, but the yarn looks like....well, like it can only redeem itself with felting. It is splitty and uneven and the stitch definition is lousy. I haven't given up on it entirely....
So I switched to the fair isle leg warmers for Al. I'm not really following a pattern, just infusing some fair isle from this chart into them. Fair Isle is a fun challenge for me. Each time I finish a go round and land on the start perfectly, I am a tiny bit thrilled.
The Liberty wool that we picked for the secondary color is darker than the skein projected. I'm getting to the lighter grey portion. I wish the pattern popped a bit more...
Did any of you see the clips of the children whose parents told them they ate all their halloween candy? Sorry, but I thought it was hysterically funny.
Grace is selling some of her stash and it is good looking stuff. I think I just nabbed a skein
