Fair Isley-ish Cap
I think I did something awhile ago w/2 colors but it was hard & annoying so I gave up & ripped out.....maybe I put something small around the top of a sock...who can remember. but I thought I would try it again & I am in love! I started it 1 evening & by the 2nd evening (altogether 2 hours TOPS!!!) I had 3/4 done....I'm using my left hand for both colors because it's next to impossible for me to knit w/my right hand anymore; and it is fun!!! I could probably loosen up my strands even more next time, but this is a practice piece & I don't wanna stop. the pattern I'm doing is from Hat's On by Charlene Schurch & it's called Ullared Cap. I'm not following it exactly because I wanted a different pattern look. It's not Fair Isle, it's Swedish actually, but I'm calling it that just so's I can remember what I did....so if you're some kinda fanatic, my humble apologies.
