What was your inspiration?
I've always loved fair isle...I was going through my odds and ends stash and was immediately drawn to the variegated red. Then, when I put the lavendar next to it, both colors 'popped' together. I thought it looked bright and festive when completed, so I hope the future recipient likes it as well.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The 'crazier' the color combinations the better. Don't be too conservative in your color choices!! While Fair Isle is a traditional style of knitting, the colors don't need to be!! :)
