Hey all-
I know some of you were wanting to see this cardigan in different colors, so here's mine. It was such a fun, easy pattern. With such bulky yarn (I used Gjestal Naturgarn from Elann), I was done in no time. It's my first adventure with fair isle too:

I love the pinky-bluey contrast in your colour choices. V cool!

this is very much on my to-knit list...

I am about to embark into the world of fair isle myself and am planning this cardigan.

Did you encounter any problems?

The pattern was so easy- I had no problems at all. I made the size small, and added 2" to the sleeves- it's a good thing I did, as they're just the perfect length. Maybe I just have long arms. Otherwise I didn't change the pattern at all. There aren't any errors in it. The only bad part was weaving in all the ends when I was done- there were so many!!

Fair isle is much easier than I thought it'd be. I knit continental style, so I just held both colors in my left hand. Be careful to leave enough slack between stitches when carrying yarns along- you don't want them to pull the stitches. 

I almost forgot to say Thank You for all of the compliments!  Grin
