Anyone Interested in a Fair Isle KAL?
Some of you may have seen my post that I want to do my first Fair Isle project. I thought maybe others out there would like to dive in to some stranded colorwork also!

I had a lot of fun with the last (ok, only) KAL that I did, because it had a great leader (Artlady) and I learned a lot from others' questions during the KAL. I asked Ingrid and she is willing to help out and answer our questions! As you may know, Ingrid has a little experience with colorwork.

Since I'm sure we won't all want to knit the same thing, I'd say any Fair Isle or stranded work is fair game (ie not intarsia). It doesn't have to be your first project, either. Any additional experience will be helpful to the rest of us! I think I'm going to do the Lusekofte sweater kit from Knitpicks. But you could do mittens, socks, a hat, a bag...

Here are a couple of other ideas (Rav links):
Endpaper Mitts
Harika Socks (I luuuv these socks)
Sapporo (another one I was considering)
Cottage Garden

I would like to start around Feb 1, to give me time to finish up a few things, decide on a pattern, and get supplies. If anyone's interested, post here! I'll make a thread in the KAL folder when we start knitting.

Cmon, you know you want to try some colorful Fair Isle!!!
I'm Laikabear on Ravelry, too!
