A FI / FO
I just love doing Fair Isle Knitting, and with the hat I finished, I finally feel a bit more confident about knitting two-handed. I really enjoyed working on this, although it ended up a bit too big for me (I did knit to gauge, too) so after I block it, if it's too large still, I might carefully give it a dryer ride to tighten it up just a bit. This pattern is the St. George Street Hat from "The Art of Fair Isle Knitting" from the Kendig Cottage store. I'm still working on the Aran sweater, I'm less than 2 inches from starting armhole decreases on the back and plan to start the sleeves on the same needle to work on at home (I've been taking the back with me when I fly to work on).
