First Real Attempt At Fair Isle
I cast on these bird mittens since they were the least intimidating fair isle project in my queue. After two false starts I finally got the hang of it! Happy to say it’s not as difficult as it looks. Fridica’s post about yarn dominance came in handy as did this one because I’m a thrower.
I was only provided with the color chart so looked for a basic mitten pattern on Ravelry and Google with no success. After a few ARGHHs I remembered I had one in my Knitter’s Book of Wool!
But before all that I made a new pink potholder. The green one was too ugly to use.
And there’s Smelly. She looks so innocent here but a few seconds before she was jumping and clawing at the cupboards for cookies.
