After I finish off some UFOs, I want my next project to be a Fair Isle sweater. I'm a continental knitter, and I've tried Fair Isle carrying both yarns in my left hand, but found it awkward. So I decided to learn to "throw" so I can carry one in each hand.
It was slow and awkward at first (flashbacks to my first scarf - a nightmare of mysterious dropped and added stitches) but I got the hang of it pretty quickly! I am a lefty so I'd like to think it presented an additional challenge! :mrgreen:
May I present, the Fair Isle Dishcloth in Progress~
Actually it's finished but I don't have a pic. The design is a little crazy, but I can now successfully knit and (haltingly) purl in the English style! :woohoo:
