My first adventure into Fair Isle!
The pattern is from Interweave Knits, Winter 2007, I think.
Very fun knit, though tucking in all those ends takes forever!

Those are gorgeous! I've made a few forays into fair isle, but they inevitably end up looking like crap. Yours look great, though.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Those are gorgeous! Did you use the yarn called for in the pattern, or something else? I made a pair of these a few months ago and I used the Blue Sky Alpaca, but mine looks more fuzzy than yours!

Great job!

p.s. Weren't these really fun to knit?

oh yeah, and when I made mine it was my first FI project and I read the chart backwards, from left to right instead of right to left, and so my vine pattern is backwards, lol.

The doggie only got to hold them for a minute for the picture... didn't want doggie drool all over them! Smiley

I skipped the Blue Sky Alpaca yarn in favor of Knitpicks Swish DK superwash. The person I gifted them to is a teenager and probably would have accidentally felted them into oblivion! Smiley

I LOVED the pattern... I had plenty of yarn left over so I'm making a pair for me! Perfect for those chilly nights at the computer! Wink
