Fair Isle

I've been rubbish at updating my blog. Mainly because I've been working flat out on designing some Fair isle for the knitting book I'm working on. I now have lots of knitters, so thank you all so much for passing on the word.

I thought you might like to see my inspiration for the project of the day which is a Baby Blanket. I plan to use Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for this. There is a great range of colours that's needed for Fair isle. Some of you know that I usually use Rooster and I still love it of course, but I have to use a much wider range of colours for this book, though there will still be a couple of projects where I will use it.
