Fear no more!

So today I conquered my fear of Fair Isle. I grabbed a couple of balls of wool, and a set of needles, and sat down with The Complete Book of Traditional Fair Isle Knitting. And ta da!

As you can see I started simple down at the bottom, but then when I got more comfortable with it I started to branch out. I used to be terrified to try color knitting, but like cabling, alot of people are afraid to try it, but it's relatively simple with practice.


And I got a dishcloth done! This is from the Strawberry Smoothie pattern at Harvest Moon Designs, and one of the hand paints that I did. This pattern was great!
