Thanks everyone. It is far from perfect. The thing I had the most trouble with was getting the Fair Isle to look nice on the sleeves. I did one on 2 circulars and the other on 4 double points, but it looked weird either way up at the top of the shoulders. I'm not sure what was going on with that. On the circs, it was where I made one of the needle changes, but with the dps I made several needle changes, but only that one looked bad. It is harder to do the stretching needed to get the FI nice when you have to change needles. Any tips?
