FABULOUS FAIR ISLE!
After much too long an absence I visited our lovely Tuesday evening safari class tonight and was so impressed with the beautiful projects they were working on, from lovely shawls to a very colorful and fabulous Fair Isle scarf from the pattern Kimmswick by Julie Hoover.

Per her specifications, she now has “a simple pink tweed cotton cardigan with pearl buttons,”- — just a little late. The CASCADE SIERRA QUATTRO yarn was just the ticket and this very simple vanilla top down cardigan pattern made sizing a snap. It literally is a perfect basic first sweater for anyone out...
