I have just finished a project I was knitting for at least six months!!
I have knitted this with bamboo needles that work well with the rough merino texture. In my opinion this combination is great as a starter project.
The skill I wanted to teach myself on this project was a simple fair isle type knitting. This is just two colours and the pattern is something I just made up as went along.
There are a few mistakes in counting but I really enjoyed this project and since then have been referring to Alice Starmore’s Book of fair isle knitting. The colours are inspirational and certainly has perked me up for something more challenging like multiple colours.
This is the finished project!
