You've knit a gorgeous Fair Isle vest! Did you use the yarn from the Craftsy kit or use it as a guide, adding on more yarn? How long did it take you to knit your vest? Knit continental or...? I'm doing a swatch, using Cascade (the other kit) and enjoy the yarn, but find the color transitions, "jarring," and lacking a more subtle, soothing transition of colors. Mine might become a pillow, and great practice piece. From there, start the vest using more colors and possibly different colors. When my knitting slows or not up to paying enough attention (sick and fair isle isn't always the greatest mix...), coming across a beautifully completed project, is great inspiration! It's very fun, to see the patterns appear :-)

Great job. If you rate this as easy you must have a lot of experience.

Wow, that looks fantastic. I wanted to give this class a go too but wasn't sure if the pattern was appropriate for me... nice to see it is! Great work.
