Mini Book Review: 200 Fair Isle Motifs: A Knitter's Directory
Despite not yet attempting a real Fair Isle project, I went ahead and ordered 200 Fair Isle Motifs: A Knitter's Directory, by Mary Jane Mucklestone. As a Fair Isle newbie, I was hoping the "techniques" section would be beefier than it was. Aside from that, I think this book is great. It's very inspirational with tons (200, in fact) of Fair Isle motifs in tons of different color combinations.
I have several project ideas in mind already, I just have to take the plunge and cast on for some colorwork!
Sitting is continuing to improve around here. E is checking out ... the lens cap, here.
Definitely in the everything-in-the-mouth stage.
