Falling for Fair Isle

Perhaps you may remember my recent obsession with all things Nordic last year?  Well add to that a fervor for Fair Isle.  Named for a small Scottish island, Fair Isle is a style of knitting that uses multiple colors in a typically graphic pattern.  The style is very similar to Nordic knit patterns.  I like that it conjures up images of apres ski relaxation, warm wood stoves, snow covered trees, and log cabins in the woods.
