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.

Having read many reviews regarding this yarn, I went ahead and ordered it off of eBay. I have to say that I am not very pleased with Cotton Fleece. With the cotton/wool blend I thought that there would be at least some stretch to it. Well, there’s not. Just like the clothes I buy from the store, there has to be a little stretch. I put the yarn up on eBay in hopes of selling it. Just don’t think I will ever use it. Plus, I want to put the proceeds towards the new yarn I want to use for my upcoming project, Berroco Love It. I have worked with this yarn before and LOVE IT, pun intended. It is a Cotton/Acrylic blend. I know some people are anti-acrylic yarn, but I think there are some exceptions.
Here is the yarn I ordered that is now for sale:
If you notice below, the skein (that is furthest on the left in above picture) is not a solid color. Apparently there were some problems during the dyeing process. I am throwing this skein in for free!
