I just finished my Autumn Rose sweater and wore it to wine tasting the other night. Overall I'm happy with my first Fair Isle project! Pattern notes etc. at my blog post (http://www.divaknitting.com/blog/2007/12/12/in-review).

That's really cool! Was it hard? It looks like it was hard. I have not tried fair isle work. I don't know if I could do it.

That's really cool! Was it hard? It looks like it was hard. I have not tried fair isle work. I don't know if I could do it.
It wasn't really hard...just time consuming and I had to get use to working with two colors at once. I did have questions here and there but thanks to my Internet friends (here and at the Autumn Rose KAL (http://www.inlovewithautumnrose.blogspot.com/)) I never got stuck for too long!

:notworthy: :notworthy: That is just STUNNING!!!! and it fits you to a T!!! I can't believe that's your first fair isle project!!

I can't believe it was my first either! Overall I'm pretty happy and I'll definitely try it again.

You'd be amazed how much wet blocking helps with that. lf you still have one of your puckered swatches try soaking it and then pinning it out to see if it relaxes.
