fiddlestickchic asked:
Love your vest and how you work it in well w/today's look,( though fair isle is HUGE again if you watch Downton Abbey, you will see Ralph Lauren advertising fair isle),,,,,,( I digress about my favorite show), I read your profile, you are a quilter also so it makes sense that you would fall in love w/ color of Fair Isle! Me? I am just starting to quilt,,,101, even though I have sewn my entire life, and I love anything that has to do w/color~ Good knitting,,,,,

Thank you fiddlestickchick! I finally figured out how to reply to your kind comment. Sorry for the delay. Thank you for turning me on to Downton Abbey. You are completely correct, it seems we are having a revival for Fair Isle. Love checking out the decor etc on Downton Abbey.
