Sally came in yesterday to put the finishing touches on her Fair Isle sweater. The pattern is from Ann Feitelson, The Art of Fair Isle Knitting. Sally started her Fair Isle odyssey in last fall’s Focus on Fair Isle class and is the first of the group to finish. This hasn’t been blocked yet, so it will look even nicer once that is done. The biggest thing that Sally learned is that she became a much better FI knitter as the project progressed. Her tension evened out and is now just about perfect. She knit the sweater over a 3 month time period whilst knitting several other “quickie” projects.
