My First Fair Isle Project

I knit my first Fair Isle project. I’ve been wanting to try fair isle knitting for a while now, but the patterns look so intimidating. Then I found a cute baby sweater pattern for a girl that I just had to knit for our new niece due in April. I decided it was time to quit fearing the patterns and just try it out. And it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. However, there were plenty of mistakes in the finished sweater…but I still think it turned out cute…and my sister-in-law is happy with it as well. This was also my first cardigan sweater.

You are my hero. Honestly. I am still on row 9 of my fair isle hat. I really enjoy doing it, but I'm definitely not as fast as you! WELL DONE! It's adorable.
