Fair Isle Knitting

Hi all. It's been a while since I posted, I know. Lots of things have been going on in my life, one major event is becoming an aunt to a beautiful baby girl. Sorry, no baby pics. I don't think my sister would be thrilled if I posted a pic on my blog without her permission. But all is well. We had a nerve wrecking few weeks but Baby Beatrix is doing wonderfully.

Back to knitting - I went on another learning curve sometime back and ventured into the world of fair isle, thanks to my favourite magazine, Lets Knit. In their October issue was a cute free knit kit - fingerless mitts. I knitted them up in October but only managed to seam them up yesterday. Apologies for not putting up lots of pics

I also went to a workshop held by Sue Stratford at John Lewis Oxford Street during Wool Week 2013 and made these Nordic Mitts

These were such fun projects and I look forward to doing more like them.

Aside from these I also ventured into lace knitting and made a chunky lace wrap for my friend for her birthday, which was called Resonance by Kelly Menzies, which is also in the October Issue of Let's Knit.
Here is the pic of the wrap.

That's all I have time for. Hope you all are knitting something fabulous! Until next time :-)
