Autumn Rose Raglan Pullover
I got the KIT on wednesday but I did my own colors so here is my swatch... This is my first real go at fair-isle so I'm very proud of my swatch!

Wow - that is going to look great! You are far more brave than I am - I shrink away from fair isle - it looks so complicated. Yours looks fantastic!

Oooo so pretty!

If I may ask..why do you have so many ends? Do you have to do that when you have a lot of colors? I've done two color fair isle.

well if you look at the pattern it uses 14 colors in the pattern repeat so thats why there are so many ends, no way to carry it up or it would be bulky. 14 color changes!
