Back to FairIsle

FairIsle was calling so I had to make a choice from my backlog of projects. "Alcea" won. This was purchased as a kit from She Ewe Knits and is from the Simply Shetland 3 book. The yarn is Jamieson's Shetland which I am really enjoying. Seems to be a little softer and has more loft than the J&S I had been using. The directions are for a pullover but I am turning it into a cardigan. It has such a large repeat that I have opted to do the smaller size but on a larger needle in order to get the correct size for me. I'm using Addi size 3 for the ribbing and size 4 for the body and it is working out fine.
