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.
