a serial knitter

i seem to be a serial knitter. i made 5 bsjs in a row, and 7 of kate gilbert's clapotis, two tomtens, 3 ganomy hats and now i have finished the 3rd fair isle which is for alba so she won't be jealous of her mother and grandmother. and it is of course made of left over alpaca from their sweaters.

i have been a little unfocused so i got the decreases wrong (i didn't read the percentage properly) but adjusted so the end result was pretty much the same, and it looks like it will work. the body has a knit up hem with a contrasting colour for 'insiders' and a 2-2 rib on the neck line and the sleeves. i have made the sleeves extra long (ribbed like mad) on ez's suggestion.

i will post a picture of the little girl in it soon as i don't think any one here has posted about a baby fair isle and hence you may be interested in how it fits a baby.


  • You certainly do accomplish alot! I love the fairisles that you have done.
