Fair Isle Class at the end of the Month

I had knitting group last night and I was reminded that I signed up for a Fair Isle knitting class on 2/26. I have always wanted to learn how to do this knitting technique. It looks complicated but our instructor, Kathy is so good at teaching us that I'm sure she will make it as simple as possible! Here is a picture of what we will be making:

I love this shell because you can wear it alone or over a shirt like in the picture above. Mine will be turquoise, hot pink, a small amount of black and lime green. I selected all the yarns last night and they look wonderful together. I don't think the class is going to be that big, so it will be good to have personal attention if we get stuck in spots! This is a great, talented group of women and I'm so glad I found them! What fun we'll have!

Hey Sherri! :) So neat that you have the same rolling pin that I have! My mom has marbles in the one that she has too. She changes hers out every once in a while too.
Congrats on your grandbaby!!! I have three boys and they have all been such a joy! (well, 99% of the time!) lol
Hope you have a great's supposed to be 66degrees here today, so I'm getting my spray paint ready! lol :)

Kay said...

That is so cool. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished creation. You have such a fabulous artistic eye.

OH do we admire you! That will be so darn cute - we are jealous! We are hoping to just learn how to knit someday. We have a good customer that wants us to go knit with her at her sister's's on our list of "to do's"....but I think that a fair isle sweater would be quite a way off! HAve fun with your class Sherri - and be sure to post some pictures!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
