The back of my Fair Isle pullover is finished! Yay! The allover nature of the pattern, with 5 different contrast colours makes it so interesting to look at. I know I keep saying it, but I get a better idea of it looking at the photos than when I’m working on it. I suppose it’s that big picture that I’m getting – standing back to observe.
In between finishing the back and really getting into the front, I’ve been knitting a little project as part of a KAL (Knit a Long). I explain that, because you might be like me, and take a couple of years to work out what KAL stands for. There’s a great monthly KAL happening in the Budding Designers Downunder
group on Ravelry. The KAL supports a different budding Australian or New Zealand designer each month. This month it’s Christine Jeffery. I’ve chosen her Tell Me a Tail bookmark
. I’m not sure that the Regia 4 colour sock yarn
that I’ve chosen is exactly letting this pattern stitch shine at it’s best, it’s still a fun and pretty project. It didn’t take long to find a member of the family putting their hand up for this one!
