Finally Finished Fair Isle
Well, I finally found buttons for my Fairly Easy Fair Isle. The sweater pattern is in the Stitch n Bitch Nation book, and it is made from Lamb's Pride Bulky. It is a pretty easy to do up sweater. If you have never done fair isle, take your time on the yoke! I had to unknit several times. This was a learning item for me because I have never done fair isle. So, I am totally pleased with my results.
I gave up on the vintage buttons and bought some at JoAnn's. I figure I can always replace them letter. This sweater needs wearin'!
I wore the sweater to work sans the buttons the other day. I got lots of positive feedback, even from people who don't know me, or that I knit. The best compliment was from the clothing teacher. Did I mention I work in a high school?
Any way, hope you all like the results.
