I just finished my fair isle jumper and had to show. This thing gets three landmarks:
1. It was my first jumper ever.
2. First big thing I've made without a written pattern. My mum gave me vague instructions over the phone and I made it up as I went along.
3. First ever fair isle project apart from a practice bit.
Sorry, I'm bragging but I'm so pleased with how it turned out! I used Jo Sharp DK, Heirloom heatherwood, some dark green scraps from my stash and a bit of Jo Sharp aran tweed for the ribbing.
Unfortunately I look like a complete dope in this pic. I was trying not to squint
My jumper is far more photogenic than I am!http://img34.photobucket.com/albums/v102/lady_clotho/meinjumper.jpghttp://img34.photobucket.com/albums/v102/lady_clotho/complete_fairisle.jpg
It was a great learning project. I feel so much more confident about trusting my instincts and making stuff up. Now onto Salt Peanuts!
