Knitting News

So...of you knitters out there, who's ever tried Fair-Isle Knitting?  I haven't...and quite frankly I've been quite happy knitting with just one color, thank you very much! LOL  :-)  But, that's about to change!  I have an opportunity to learn how to Fair-Isle knit....Ut oh! LOL  I'm excited to try this out though!  I don't have all the materials needed at the moment, but from what I've read it seems like this is going to be fun!  I have to admit, I'm a bit nervous because I've yet to use two colors, and reading charts intimidates me!  But, most of what I know of knitting I've learned from Liat (knitfreedom.com) so I feel confident that she'll explain this technique clearly, so even I can understand and follow along in her new book, "The Complete Knitfreedom Video Guide to Fair-Isle Knitting".  Whether I can replicate is yet to be seen! Ha ha!  I'll keep you posted on my progress and I'll post a review of her video guide when I'm all through.  Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck, Heather! I know you'll do awesome. Reading charts is so easy (once you know how to do it). I look forward to seeing what you create!
