Unfinished Work

Alas, I did not have time to photograph the fair isle cowl that I have been working on. It is going to be an interesting piece because the diameter is only about 14 inches while the lenght is going to be around 24 inches. The fair isle is quite beautiful but when I wear it, you won't be able to see all of the pattern because it will be bunched up.

It definitely will be an elegant winter piece but since winter has left the New York City and the surrounding metropolitian area, I probably will not be able to wear it until next season. While the weather has been a balmy 70 degrees of and on and quite sunny, I hope that it is not ungodly hot this summer. Then I will have to rethink knitting patterns for warm weather!

The Fair Isle Story Continues...

So I am about half finished with my fair isle cowl. The stitches are working up nicer since I stopped pulling the second color of yarn behind every front stitch of the first color. I realized after a while that this makes the stitches lumpy and uneven.

My next goal after I finish the fair isle is to knit this blissful blue top from the lion brand site. Only I will knit it in beige. I need a feminine top for work this coming spring and to improve my experience working with lace as well.;utm_medium=Emails;utm_campaign=Weeklynewsletter;utm_content=P-BlissfulBlueTop

Aside from that, there is not much new right now. In fact, to be honest, I really don't even know what to write. I will try to post images of my cowl in the next few days and hopefully that will make up for my temporary lack of inspiration with the written word.
