  • Fun With Fair Isle

    Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.
    -Carl Sandburg

    The Christmas basket is finally getting some love. Check out these mittens.That wasn't enough, was it?Hallard Mittens
    Pattern: from Folk Mittens
    Yarn: Cascade 220 - delightful. I have bunches more. More mittens, perhaps?
    Needles: US 3 Brittany Birch dpns
    Notes: The only real modification I made was to use the same pattern on both cuffs instead of corrugated ribbing on the left cuff. A delightful pattern.
    Best Thing About This Project: The initials on the right cuff. But I can't show you them, can I?I loved making these mittens so much that I went ahead and got ready to start not one, not two, but three new stranded knitting projects. And, yes, one of them is mittens. Oops!

    I always say I want to knit Fair Isle, but I never have. Maybe I should start with mittens. These are great!

    Great mittens! I haven't tried stranded knitting yet, but I'm thinking perhaps soon I may. A baby project, perhaps?

    I can't wait to see your new projects! They look very colorful.
