I'd like to try a Fair Isle project - something relatively simple since it's my first time trying it.
My first was the Tomato sweater from NSFY, but a lot of people liked the Center Square hat on knitty.
My first Fair Isle was the Alice sweater. It turned out GREAT![FONT=Verdana][B]http://www.magknits.com/Aug05/alice.htm[/B][/FONT]
My first attempt at fair isle was this video. You need IE. http://www.philosopherswool.com/Pages/Streamingvideo.htmI made the little bag first. Then I started putting fair isle bands on hats to practice and it looks cute. Once you get the hang of it it's very simple.
Thanks for all of those - I love that hat from Knitty, I think I might try that first :D.
my first was the We Call Them Pirates hat from helloyarn.it's a lot easier to knit than it looks.
That's cool - I saw that pattern when I went over there to look at the Irish Hiking Scarf. I hate those tiny needles tho :(.
