I am using Rowan yorkshire Tweed, I have stitch gauge with it and almost row gauge! The only trouble is that the colours are limited although it does bloom beautifully when washed!

Ok, after visiting this page nearly every other day, looking at the charts in the magazine for about a week, and petting the intended yarn for a little over two weeks, I decided that I couldn't take it any longer!

I don't have the money to get the rest of the yarn as of right now... and I don't even have the recommended needles, but I just had to work from the chart! So I pulled out my size 1s and got to work on a simple 31 st piece... then switched them to size 2 dpns that I remembered having. I worked one chart repeat, and I'm in love!

Since this is my first fair isle, I'm not even sure I'm doing it correctly- see if you can see any inherent mistakes. Also, how does my carrying look? Is it necessary to twist the yarns when switching, as in intarsia? Or is it enough to just drop one yarn and pick up another? I'm learning a lot, but I'd like to know as much as possible before I jump into the full pattern in the next few weeks.



They're a bit fuzzy... I guess that's what happens when you're too anxious to wait for a little sunlight!

Looks good!:)

Depending on your knitting style, you could hold the two yarns in one hand or pick up & drop as needed. (see www.knittinghelp.com under Advanced Techniques--> Knitting With 2 Colors).

i taught myself to knit 2 handed, as in i usually hold the yarn with my left hand but i learned to hold the dominant color in my left and the nondominant in my right. It's really not so bad and it's a hell of a lost faster than picking up and dropping. My first fair isle project was eunny's vneck vest and i started with the pickup and drop method and it drove me nuts

Mustaches are sooo 2 years ago

Knitters get all of the pretty sweaters!  Sad
That looks fantastic.  Maybe one day my roommate will teach me how to knit and it will STICK! XD (I'm a crocheter, but I'm left-handed, so it's hard for her to teach me because she's right-handed.)
« Reply #469 on: September 28, 2007 06:46:06 AM »

I'm very strongly left-handed and believe me, there is no difference! Knitting is a new skill for both hands, it doesn't matter which of yours is dominant.
However, individuals do have different preferences for what hand they hold the wool in - not necessarily associated with handedness -so try out both ways (videos on KH).
