I'm not really sure what's happened this week - plans to do this, that, and the next, just went awry, sound familiar? :) :) Still doing some glove knitting but I won't bore you continually with that!
I found a pattern for a fair isle heart a little while ago here and decided to give it a go - well, sometimes you just have to give in to temptation, hehe :) I was a little intrigued to try it because it is not knitted in the round, but on two needles which meant I would have to purl in English and continental style on the reverse - eeks! I learnt how to knit and purl in continental style to do my fair isle knitting but had never really practiced to do purl stitch - so off I went.
I would only do fair isle knitting on two needles on a very small project like this as it's far more laborious than knitting in the round. It worked though - and I got to use these cute floral bamboo needles I got free with a knitting magazine . . . .
. . . once I started, I just couldn't stop . . .
. . . I was completely entranced . . .
. . . but it turned out pretty cute I think!
Such a lovely pattern - I made another one to keep it company . . .
Sweet for Christmas decorations I think :) Have a nice weekend!
Cheerio an Drasda :)
