The magazine doesn't come out till November, but the preview is up on the Interweave Knits website listing what yarn to buy.  I have already ordered and received my yarn, just waiting for the pattern now....  Anybody else wanna join in?

I admit it.  I blog.

Will you post a link? All I can find is the list of patterns that will be included.

Wow, I totally wanted to make this the second I saw the photo, but them's some expensive yarn! I wonder if knitpicks palette would work? http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420132/yarn_display

Oh and Alice, here's the photos: http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/preview/2006_winter.asp

I am totally in for this one.

I've been having Eunny withdrawal since finishing the Deep V.  I need fair isel!  I need a beautiful FO!

Also, that would be great if Palette works for this.

Wow, I was just killing time before staff meeting, and the variety of colors in the recommended yarn is ASTOUNDING!

Here's a link to the color chart for the Jamieson's Spindrift:http://www.camillavalleyfarm.com/knit/jamiesonsspindriftcolours.htm

As compared to Knitpicks palette:  (A link for those who would like one: http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420132/yarn_display)

My thought on Palette used to be "ooooh, pretty!"  and now are tending more toward "DAMN, what a tiny color palette for a yarn named PALETTE!"

Oh well, I figured this project would be one of epic proportions any way I looked at it. I just wasn't expecting the drama to start with yarn selection.

I'm going to follow this thread, though I am not going to knit this myself yet... but I really love this design! I may ask for the yarn for Christmas, since I think it's going to be pretty pricey.

I'm crystalnickel on Ravelry!

Ok, talk me out of it.  I love Eunny, but I have never done fairisle before  Sad
This is too much for a beginner, right?  I should try something simpler for my first fairisle project, right?  Please talk me out of it Wink

This is the one that calls for the Spindrift, right?  I think this sweater is great, but 8st/inch and size 2 needles?!  I could knit ten other sweaters in the time it takes to knit one of these... however, as it is such a pretty pattern, I will no doubt be following this thread just to look at the photos of FOs!

If palette had more colors it could work, but there just aren't enough.   I looked all over the internet for substitute yarns, and came to conclusion that I was just going to have to buy the yarn called for.  I had to order from 2 different vendors, and still am missing one color.  Two Swans yarns had a good price on the yarn and free shipping.  It's kind of like a treasure hunt finding all of the colors. 
And about it being on small needles and small gauge, just look at it as a money saving technique.  Hear me out.  Smaller needles, smaller gauge, equals more knitting time for the same amount of money for yarn as a large gauge sweater that will be done quickly an then you need another project.  (We knitters have to find some way to justify our craziness  Wink )  Besides, Eunny knit hers in FIVE FREAKIN DAYS! 


I admit it.  I blog.

Eunny could probably knit a cozy to cover my house in five days, but I suppose that's beside the point.  Fair Isle is the only thing that can hold my attention for long stretches anyway.  (It's the perfect ADD knitting.)

goldengrrl:  I'd say definitely try a smaller fair isle project before tackling this one.  (Preferably one that you can get done before the new Interweave comes out so that you can be in the thick of it with us.) I'll hunt around on the internet to see if I can find anything that might be appropriate.  But once you've fallen in love with it, it's quite addictive.  My first fair isle was the capelet on the cover of Wrap Style and I've been hooked ever since.
