Remember when I said I would never do fair isle? Well, I still stand by the spirit of that. Don’t get me wrong, I think people like Kate Davies and Mary Jane Mucklestone have really made some beautiful works of craft, and I admire that. I do not, however, have any inclination to pick up four different colors of yarn and attempt to do the same. It just isn’t happening.
Now, that being said, I did do a little bit of beginner’s fair isle on some socks. Another catch up post, by the way, as these socks have been around for almost or more than two months, I think. They had to be old fashioned tall socks, and somehow a snowflake-esque pattern just seemed wholly appropriate for them. Take a gander.
