I've been working on a Fair Isle project these last few days, and I've actually made some progress! (applause!)
What you see here is the middle part of a pillow. I still have the edges left, but I'm loving it so far! I was a little bit hesitant when I started, because I haven't done much Fair Isle, and the chart looked really complicated (not to mention the instructions!). But after a few rows, I was getting the idea. And Fair Isle is so satisfying, because you see the results almost instantly.
This first picture is a close up of the pattern. I found this pattern on the Two Swans Yarns website when I was browsing around. They use 14! colors, but I wanted to make it a little more simple, so I'm going to use only 6 colors. Two for the middle, two for the edging, and two for the borders. In the picture below, you can see the whole shebang on my fridge door fastened with magnetic hangers. Oh, how clever I am! :)
