Cleaning up

Yesterday I organized my wool into a better storage container than multiple bags. I put them all into a nice old suitcase and fond so many colours I didn't know I still had I started straight away at knitting a new cardigan in a fair isle design. I love traditional Scottish knitting techniques but I always end up with knotted up wool. Unfortunately after all my tidying up I went into my pan tree and found another basket full of wool in it.

Some cool examples of fair isle design


  1. I love those Scottish sweaters, too. So classic and cozy...

  2. I have a whole booklet, from the 40s, of fair isle patterns.
