The kindness of strangers
I was going to post an update of the Fearless Fair Isle but after looking at the picture from last week and calculating how many rounds have been finished since then it's rather pointless. Instead, here's the Young Lady's Evening Stocking from Knitting Vintage Socks. As you can see, this was my main knitting project this weekend. It's a knee length sock with a lacy open-work design.
I left a comment on Lorraine the Knitting Hammy's blog last week, asking her about the software she uses to design Fair Isle (she does yummy stuff, go look!). She not only replied and let me know which software she uses, but gave me a mini-tutorial on designing Fair Isle! She gave me some good ideas - I need to re-visit some of those designs I've been working on. I'm always impressed with the willingness (eagerness, even!) of knitting people to share what they know. Thanks, Lorraine!
