Fair Isle Drops Design Sweater - FINISHED! p.3
I'm having so much fun with this fair isle stuff. It's fun! And I also learned how to weave in yarn along the back when there are more than 4 stitches in a single color. I look so cool and skilled doing it. I'm obsessed with making this sweater. It's in Yummy Karabella Aurora 8 which is so nice to knit, too. I woke up at 3am and started knitting some more. This is my progress so far since I started 2 days ago.

The pattern is here: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/vi..._id=24&lang=en

I can't wait to see it done! If you're up at 3:00 a.m. knitting, then it won't be long!

Beautiful work!

I just ordered a ridiculous amount of Karabella Aurora 8 for my next two projects... I can't wait to get started!

BTW, I couldn't get your pattern link to work... could be that my satellite service is spotty, though.

Isn't Aurora 8 fantastic? I almost hate it, finding an expensive yarn I like so much. Why can't I find a cheap yarn I like just as much?

It probably isn't your service. Drops has been having some problems, and for like 1/2 hour I couldn't knit because I couldn't get the page to load and I needed to look at the chart. Try it again some time and it should work.

I love the color combo in your Fair Isle. Looking great so far!

I bought enough Aurora 8 during a sale at KellyK's yarn store and I can't WAIT to knit with it.

BTW - that pattern is AMAZING
