I'm making the Skull Isle-hat from Son of Stitch 'n Bitch. I'm making it with different yarn, and larger needles...and different stitch count...and I'm leaving the whole chart a out of it..
But check it out, here it is in the making:


My first fair isle project ever!!!
I also wrote about it in here: http://torranceknits.blogspot.com/2007/11/im-genius.html


EDIT: Now it's done and photographed. Still don't have an action shot 'cos I have no idea where my glasses are..

I love it! I have never tried Fair Ilse (scared of the multiple colors in the same row), but your hat looks amazing!!! Thanks for sharing.

You're making it look so easy in those action shots.

^Thanks everyone!
I'm really pleased with it too.
I've always been a little afraid of fair isle..figured it was too hard for me. Actually had to re-do the hat a couple of times too. But once I got the hang of it, it was suprisingly easy!

yay for me! Wink

The hat is done. (Has been since sunday night). I will post pictures as soon as a) I can find the cord that links my camera to my computer and b) I can find my glasses so I can take action shots. (I look better with my glasses on...even if you couldn't see my face in the pic Wink)
..yes, I have a very messy little apartment..

Anything with a skull on it is awesome.  Anything with more than one skull is godly.  You have attained god-like status.  Enjoy the fruits of your labour. Wink

I think looking at this has inspired me to make another hat.

I'm curious to see what the hat looks like on the inside.  Did you twist the yarn or did you leave long strands?

Awesome, I love the colours you have paired together!  This turned out really well.

Oh, and don't you hate looking for your glasses without your glasses?  When I was a little kid I thought a great invention would be to have little glasses to wear while you looked for your lost ones.  But then, when the thought occurred to me that you would need more and more glasses to look for each one as they got lost, it kind of blew my mind and I never really pursued it.   Wink
