If you've never done fair isle before, knitting back and forth is a bit harder than doing a project in the round (keeping your two yarns untangled when you switch from knit to purl). So from that perspective, this might not be the ideal project to start with; on the other hand, what have you got to lose? Make no promises to the recipient and experiment with cheap yarn; if you find yourself tangled (which you probably won't), you haven't lost much.
