My First Fair Isle

I have never knit any Fair Isle, only admired from afar. But recently, I found a pattern that is in a worsted weight and I thought that would be a better experience than starting out with fine needles and finer weight yarns. I am pretty happy with it. I did tack down some of the strands but some could not be because on the purl side you were asked to knit.

The pics are not true to the color...the small close-up shows the real color. I don't know why my camera would not capture the true shades. I don't normally have this problem with today being the exception. I did try to touch them up so they would appear like the true object. In short, the pink is a fairly dark shade, but bright and the green is almost lime in color.

The buttons are from my collection of buttons which has grown by leaps and bounds. I might have more buttons now than yarn.

Some little girl will wear it and look great!
