I don't usually post until my project is done. But I am so excited by this that I couldn't resist giving you a "preview". A couple weeks ago I started a Fair Isle class and am making a vest for DH.

I LOVE FAIR ISLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I is surprisingly easy, just takes concentration.

:passedout: I am in awe of your talent! Honestly, this is divine work!

Honestly, it isn't all that hard. It's much like following a cable graph. The only difference is you are holding two yarns. Fair Isle LOOKS soo complicated but you only use 2 colors in a row so it isn't so hard.

This vest will have steeks at the neck and armholes which mean you just knit round and round and round.......... My next class is Thursday and I am racing to get to the armhole by then!
