Fake Isle Hat
Is anyone interested in doing a Fake Isle Hat kint-along? I'm using this pattern: http://www.magknits.com/Nov06/patterns/fakeisle.htm to make a project that is both my first Fair Isle and my first hat. It's a great first Fair Isle project and an excellent way to use the odd left-over skein of Noro Kureyon (bonus points for stash busting, right?)

I've already begun working on mine (which you can see here: http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...nitting007.jpg) but I can already see that I'll probably end up doing several.

So I think it's a really cool project and KarrieLyne suggested a Knit-along. Who's with us? :D

I'd like to but....
I'd love to join in but I'm waiting for a LOT of goodies to arrive by mail. I've spend a lot this week already. :rollseyes:

I think I'll wait a few days before ordering the yarns. I see that Webs sells the Noro and the Lambs Pride. NIce to order both at the same time. I'll keep you posted.

I just actually finished my first one, because I just couldn't wait - here are pictures:

So now that I'm "experienced" (HA!) I can help if anybody has questions. And I'm going to start a new one really soon, so we can all help each other as our hats progress.

I'm so glad people joined! This is going to be so much fun :D

lol I don't have a regular job this summer, so I'm spending a good amount of time on my knitting. That's how I get a lot of stuff done. And I kind of have an obsessive personality; once I start on something, it's all-consuming until I finish it.

Tomorrow I'm going to my first free Open Knitting time at the LYS - I'm probably going to buy another skein of Noro Kureyon (maybe in "manlier" colors) and start another of these hats. I'm thinking they'll make excellent Christmas presents!

Thanks for all the positive feedback! Feel free to post pictures, even of the work in progress :D

I think I'll join in -- I have never done Fair Isle and definitely need the practice. I had trouble even swatching 2 repeats of a chart yesterday so we'll see how it goes!

:D

It came out great - good job!

I'm still a little lost on reading the chart - it's right to left, yes? So I would take the first row at the bottom and work it repeatedly over the stitches for that row, then start the second one and work it right to left etc etc etc?
