OK, so I got the yarn for my first Patons project and have been trucking away on these fair isle socks. I have never, until now, realized how tedious fair isle knitting can be. Probably because I am making socks. Thin yarn, loads of stitches and LOTS of concentration. This is not a project in which I can read and knit at the same time. In order to help combat the cursing and headaches, I am using my super cool chart keeper thingie from KnitPicks. Every lace, cable or fair isle knitter NEEDS this thing. I redid the fair isle pattern on my computer. Blew it up to a size that is actually, you know, readable. However, I am STILL getting lost!!! I need suggestions people. How do you organize your fair isle projects?
OK, so doesn’t this yarn look YUMMY?!?!?! Seriously, I could fondle it all day long.
Lilypad Lace is going to be a hard skein to part with one day. I might even shed a tear at the post office.
I also added Rainbow Sorbet to my Organic Sock Yarn line.
