Lovin' the Fair Isle




I made this tonight! The teacher was great. Unfortunately, I was the only one in the class. But I learned what I went there to learn, and I took some Cascade 220 home with me. :-)

Found out that the shop has a charity knitting GTG on Sundays. From 1 to 4, they provide the yarn for knitting items for charity. Knitters just need to bring themselves and their needles.




Here is the famous made in one day baby hat (modeled by heidifred).




And here is the matching cardigan, a modified version of the garter stitch cardigan in "Weekend Knitting" by Melanie Malick.



Here is my current bus knitting. The sock yarn is from trekking - I'm liking the way that it is striping.
