Fair Isle Vest Finished - Finally!

Well it took it's time to get there but the Fair Isle vest is now finished.

No particular problems with the pattern just a lack of motivation in the knitter.  But now that it's finished, I'm very pleased with the result.

I've haven't got any pictures of me wearing it yet - my photographer has gone to university!  I have had to give up my modelling career and turn photographer with the lovely Ada the mannequin standing in as model.

Full details of the project can be seen on my Ravelry page, here.

I haven't started to write up the pattern yet - never a very inspiring task but I will do it as soon as I can work up the enthusiasm.

I'm still preferring crocheting to knitting at the moment and I have just spotted an amazing project that I want to start straight away.  Sara at Tangled Happy has posted a link to a post on Roman Sock in which Brigitte has crocheted some covers for knobs (for drawers and doors!).

Why hasn't anyone thought of this before - our house is going to be transformed!


  1. Awww I'll take photos for you if you want :D It looks very nice. I saw the crocheted doorknobs and loved the idea xxx

  2. it's really very pretty! and the color scheme is very nice!

  3. love your vest!! Hope you manage to write up the pattern. Great ideas for the handles on the draws will have a go!
