Niiiice work Dustina! I have yet to get the hand of Fair Isle knitting. Something about the tension of the strand in the back. Of course, stranded knitting is also hard for me. I avoid it at all costs...but...when I see adorable work like yours...it makes me wish...

Thanks for sharing your work with us...and WELCOME HOME! :happydance:
