A Pair of Fair Isle Socks

done for October.



Baltic Socks



This was a huge learning process for me and while both socks fit they aren't exactly the same size. I learned a lot about "floats" and the importance of making them loose enough. Socks, mittens or any small-ish project is prefect for an introduction to Fair Isle knitting for anyone wanting to give it a try.

I will wear these as they are extremely warm (knit with Peace Fleece wool) and since long pants will cover any of the slight imperfections, well, no one will ever know but me :-D
