Happiness is a Finished Fair Isle

(One front and two sleeves, sitting pretty)

I do not, unfortunately, have FO pics to share, because while I did cut and complete the sweater this weekend, I also washed it while at my folks’ place, and it had not quite dried in time for me to take it back with me. But, I do have some pictures. Watch this space for more – I’ll try to upload the video clip I have of the cutting. (Only 3 snips. Hardly any pain involved at ALL.) šŸ˜‰

(Cutting the first armhole steek.)
(The collar cutout.)

Also, you can see smides of my lavender Highland Silk Ivy, of which I still have not taken proper FO pictures. D’oh!


  1. Oh my stomach turned just looking at the still photo with you and the scissors and that gorgeous fair isle. As much as I want to try steeking, I know I don’t have the stomach for it.

    Wow – very beautiful! And you’re so brave cutting into it – that particular form of torture is new to me but I assume it isn’t the crazy lady side of your coming out!

  5. Beautiful! What a brave and courageous woman you are! Can hardly wait for more photos and Lavender Ivy sleeves are beautiful…looking forward to seeing it proper also.
    You have such pretty hands.

  6. Phenomenal to see you steeking that beautiful sweater so confidently and confidently, its amazing, looking forward to seeing the finished object!

  7. Btw that should have read confidently and competantly…sorry!
