"Fair" Knits!

I decided I needed a break from my store sample socks this weekend and did a little Norwegian Lovin' ;) My sister loved the idea of us having LSU game day socks that she asked me to do a hat. I wanted to get creative and found this awesome web page... So what do you think?

I was sooooo excited to do this project that I started a KAL for ANY Fair Isle Knits... go here to join if interested. I tried carrying the yarn in my right hand and the other in my left (my preffered hand) and for some odd reason when I was throwing the yarn and using my right hand instead of the left, my stitches were twisted??? Wierd huh? I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong?


I also dabbled in my cardi, and it's about 9 inches long now... I have started some impromtu cables around the waist, I'm hoping this will give it a little cinch in this area!




The family is doing well. My neice just moved here to Houston and we all are excited about her new job. Hillard and Brandon are beginning to act like "normal" brothers and they seem to pick on each other a lot now-a-days.... Still they pretty much ignore one another, but it warms Chris and I's heart when we hear them fight (because it means they were actually playing) he he he. Cute huh?

I have a new love now for fair isle... okay knitting obsessions:
1. Socks
2. Lace
3. Norwegian Fair Isle Does anyone know of some good books or web pages for this?

Can't seem to get enough of these ;)


Goals for the week? get sock done and bring to yarntopia... clean house.... and Catch up on those bloglines....eeek!

Cool hat! Will you teach me to do that? Maybe I can figure it out over the computer hehe. Or you could always come to Michigan to show me (wink).

Funny, I was laying in bed this morning thinking about the SnB fair isle sweater I've intended to make for over a year now. Is there a time requirement to joining the KAL?

There are TONS of fair isle projects in the new fall pattern books and magazines that Sheryl and I put out over the holiday.

The hat looks great! I haven't tried fair isle yet, but I plan to. I have a sock pattern with fair isle waiting for me (the finished product is for me). First though, I need to get some of my UFO's done - pluse a couple of Christmas gifts.

That was an interesting comment about the boys playing. My son also has ASD. He has a playmate from his special ed preschool come over and they just enjoy playing by themselves together.
