Sheep to Sweater: Still no idea where to find a sheep to shear. Buuuuuut, I am working on a couple of interesting projects that I think will help broaden the spectrum of sweater patterns I could choose from.
This is going to be Limelight Stirrup Socks from Lionbrand Knit in KnitPicks wool in four colors I had laying around.
|These are my first attempt at Fair Isle knitting, meaning that I am knitting with multiple colors stranded across the back of the work. Wikipedia sums it up, "Traditional Fair Isle patterns have a limited palette of five or so colors, use only two colors per row, are worked in the round, and limit the length of a run of any particular color."|
|One mitten down. The left one is about half way done.|
