Yeah it's done! Blocking. I think it came out great. Notice the body. I did a variation of color combinations in those fair isle bands to give it some different character with the natural colors. I kept the sleeves the same, and the buttonbands are the same also. The neck I took off 2 rounds of ribbing, (I don't really like high necks!) After it dries, I'll put on the buttons, my tag, and it will be ready for the winter! Have a great weekend all..... :) Posted by Picasa

The sweater looks beautiful. Your workmanship is just amazing. You should be writting your own book so others can refer to it and be inspired. Lord knows reading your blog helps me to stay motivated.
Like yourself, I have a family to take care of and at times it is so hard to get anything done. So, when I need a knitting or spinning pick me I know just the blog to read. : )

Thanks Crystal, that's awfully nice of you to say. I'm glad that my work inspires you to keep on knitting. As for writing a book, I wouldn't have any idea of where to start. Besides, I have a little issue with writing patterns. I just don't really. I jot down notes (that only I can decipher) and just knit... sorry, maybe I should work on that huh?

now, that's some pretty nice "fair isle-ing" you've done there.

Your spinning and knitting are amazing! Spinning and knitting a fair isle! I feel I've really done something when I spin and knit a pair of socks. Love your blog.

Thank you all kindly. I'm working on another one with the left over yarn from the first fair isle, there was enough to make a slipover, and you know me, no time to waste, and no "yarn" to waste. :)
