1. I hope the other distressing news from home isn’t bad Kersti. I’ve done some Fairisle knitting, but it’s been a long time now. Am looking for some yarn right now to make this summer type looking sweater that I bought the pattern for. I better hurry though as it’s a more warm weather type of sweater. I’ll be waiting to see yours though..small huh, maybe for the little one…? Good luck..

    Prayers and good thoughts regarding the distressing news.

    I have been very tempted to try Fairisle knitting but have chickened out so far. Are you doing it with one color in each hand or both colors in the same hand? I have repeatedly watched a vid of a lady that teaches a color in each hand, she makes it looks simple. Try as I might I still cannot knit with the opposite hand.

  3. Thank-you 🙂
    I’m doing one strand in each hand. I think it helps that I’m a continental knitter or picker. The right hand is awkward but I’ve picked it up fast enough. I’d suggest if you really want to do that that you try just knitting continental. Once you get the hang of that the rest should be easy for fair isle. My biggest issue now is knitting in the round and making sure that I don’t pucker where my needles are turning.

  4. If you check my web site under knitting by clicking on the button you can see what I have knitted. I’ve got more projects coming up. Socks, and another sweater. I was going to put the picture of the one in here, but I don’t see where I can…
