a long time ago i made an attempt at fair isle knitting that did not go well. i knitted as much as a whole sleeve, but since i hadn’t grasped the technique, the result was poor and what was worse was that i had chosen yarn that did not go very well together. oh, there was nothing wrong with the colours, but even though they were both 3-ply wool yarn from the same manufacturer, one of them was significantly thicker than the other. i’ve cast on for this project probably four of five times but i was never satisfied.
i didn’t want to give up on this project, though, i think it might turn into a beautiful jumper in the end. and the intended recipient keeps wondering if will ever receive a jumper knit by me. well, i really hope he does.
