Fair Isle done.

I think I'll start on the Dragonfly pattern from Spring/Summer 1997 next.

Update on Fair Isle

I'm thinking that I'll have the body done, and perhaps start on the arms by the end of the month.

Silver Belle, anyone?

Hello! I'm excited to be a new member of this KAL. Right now I'm choosing yarn for the Vogue 25th Anniversary covers pattern called Silver Belle. It's a lovely empire line cardigan with a shaped color and peplum. Given my "jones" for cables, this project will surely give me more than enough satisfactory use of my cable hook!

The yarns I'm considering are: Patons's Merino, Jo Sharp DK worsted, Tahki Donegal Tweed. I think the Tweed may be a bit too rough for the design, am leaning toward the Jo Sharp yarn, as it's perfectly wonderful to use and offers a refined surface that would showcase the fancy stitches beautifully.

I'll be posting photos as things get going. In the meantime, stay warm and keep those needles flying!

~ Ready to Start ~

Are you ready to get started? I am and I believe this lovely will be what I'll try first though the new VK Holiday issue has given me several things I would love to make. I'll update later with yarn details.
