FO: First KA (Feb) and First Fair Isle Dog Sweater
I'm just LOVING this forum AND this new addiction. I thought I would try my hand at the Feb. KA (my first one, and do a dog sweater like one I have already made (my first & 2nd ones (Peanut & Ripley modelling) were posted here). This time I made it in purple for the KA challenge and my first time trying a fair isle pattern.

I learned the Fair Isle here on KH Knitting with 2 colors at a time video, and was amazed at how simple it was! I did have the design finished and had to frog it because the end stitches were too tight, even though I KNEW to keep them lose, I guess it wasn't loose enough. Since I was frogging, I went ahead and undid a few extra rows and placed the design exactly where it should be.
