I have received such lovely messages here and on Ravelry for my Fair Isle cardigan.
This has inspired me to reknit the pattern so that I can iron out the little niggles that made it not quite as I wanted it. I will then feel comfortable publishing the pattern.
I've chosen a slightly different colour palette - using yarn from my existing stash. It's Rowan Fine Tweed, which I love - although I've noticed the price of a ball seems to have shot up over the last year or so!
I'll be starting this later today and I can't wait to get the ribbing out of the way so I can start on the Fair Isle pattern. Although I plan the colour combinations carefully, I can never be sure how they will look when knitted up into a full size garment - part of the fun of Fair Isle knitting.
I've also recently treated myself to some Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper weight yarn.
I'm relatively new to this Shetland wool but I'm loving knitting with it. Far more reasonably priced than the Rowan wool - I'm busy building up my stash of this yarn.
I'm planning a lacy knit cardigan with the darker purple and a Fair Isle panelled cardigan with the rest - although by the time I get round to knitting this wool up, I may have changed my ideas.
I have more ideas than I have time to knit - so what's new!
