Hey...Fair Isle isn't as hard as I thought...

So, I've been working along on my Knitting Olympics project, and really, Fair Isle knitting isn't that bad. It's one of those things that looks waaaay harder than it is. This sweater is going to be so's so bright, and the Safran yarn is a joy to work with. It has a really tight twist, so it isn't splitty at all. I may have to make myself a sweater out of it later.

I may end up lining the sweater with a cotton knit fabric, to cover up all the stranded bits.

Wow, that looks so pretty. Your stitches are nice and even, which I think is the hardest thing to do with fair isle. Can't wait to see some more!
