Here is what I've been working on:
|First I wove in all of the yarn ends.|
|Then I could see how badly my color work needed to be blocked.|
|Ta-da! Blocking works magic!|
I fell in love with the picture of this sweater on the cover of the Fall 2006 Interweave Knits. Since casting on for this sweater in 2007, I've taken a Fair Isle knitting class and learned a few things:
(Thanks Betsy and Crystal!)
1. Most Fair Isle patterns are written such that they would be knit in the round.
2. There is an easy method of locking in your yarn ends as you knit through each color change.
Having learned those 2 things, hopefully I can knit more colorful patterns in the future without having to deal with so many yarn ends. I am now working on seaming the sweater. If it fits it will all have been worth it.
