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?)
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
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
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?
