But first, photos from the 3-day Design Your Own Fair Isle workshop last weekend:
Some wonderful designs were started! I can't wait to see how they develop.
I really enjoyed reading all your comments about knitting Fair Isle garments and whether or not you would ever design your own. Thank you to all the readers who added their voices to the discussion! It was especially nice to hear from those of you who usually remain quiet.
I put all 76 (!) names in a box, and Gingko blindly picked the winner of Sweater Quest: Lynn! (Several Lynns submitted comments--the winner wrote on 3/22 and I'll contact her directly.) I think Lynn will enjoy this book; she wrote, "I have started 3 [Fair Isles]--all Alice Starmores and have finished none of them." Perhaps this book will be the inspiration she needs!
Speaking of Progress
Here's my current project, now above the armpits. I'm pretty pleased about how this is turning out!
