The fairest of them all

Ahh knitting Fair Isle is such sweet satisfaction. Never boring, always colorful ,enough cheerfulness to keep my spirit going even on the grayest of days. And these little beauties are almost like instant gratification; so quick and easy to do if you have a stash of lovely shetland yarn you can whip these babies up in no time. How fun it is choosing the colors that suit your mood, inspiration, or whimsy of the day! I want to send a shout out to my friend Mary Jane who showed me the way of Fair Isle oh so many years ago. Thanks for inspiring me.

Ode to an island- Fair Isle is for me, a little island in the sea. Colorful knitting popped up like a weed, so glad; its just what I need.
