Tonight I start a three week class on Fair Isle knitting. One pattern, eight colors of wool, and size 2 needles. 2. Maybe if I stop knitting everything else on my list of projects I’ll be able to finish this in three class sessions. I chose a fairly subdued color palette and ended up having to trade out one more gray for the brighter pink you see here.

Eight colors of yarn!

I’ll keep you posted as to the progress and whether or not my brain ends up being able to handle this new-to-me knitting style. I really like the look of Fair Isle knitting so I’m hoping I’ll be able to learn how to make these things for myself.
