I'm seriously considering this one - I love the sweater. I've never done fair isle, so maybe this is a good project to learn it with?

I'd have to buy some new yarn for this though. Gee, what a problem!

I am thinking aobut it too, but I have to finish some stuff first. I have too many WIPs, and I too would have to order yarn. Oh, the tragedy.

I made this a few months ago out of Lion Brand Cotton Ease, and it is a really easy, really fast knit. I was scared of the fair isle at first, but even that went relatively smoothly after I learned how to knit Continental. I just followed the instructions in my Stitch 'n' Bitch book and the Amy's videos and it worked like a charm.

Never did learn how to purl Continental though. Oh well.

I'm thinking of using Cascade Sierra- love the feel of it! Probably blue with something for contrast...

Tomato
Hi,
I, too, love the Tomato sweater pattern. I have never knitted fair isle either but would like to learn. I would be interested in doing a kal on this one if it were a little later in the summer. Right now I am trying to finish up my Bonne Marie Burns waist-coat. It's such a neat pattern. It's her latest and it's called Nicole. I am also working on a shrug using a Drops pattern. Anyway, I saw the Tomato pattern the other day and I loved it.

I really like this pattern also. I printed it off and will study it, not able to start any time soon though, need to save some money for awhile before I buy any more yarn.

oooo I started this one a few weeks ago! Now I won't have an excuse not to work on it!

The fair isle in this top is *very very* easy. It's a good first fair isle project, IMHO.
