  9. I'm actually working on 2 fair isle projects, but both are giving me lots of stress. My gauge increases tremendously in the fair isle yokes and my sts are terribly inconsistent. My most recent finished fair isle project was Afmaeli which used thick lopi yarn and was much more forgiving then the sport I'm using now. Savannagal on Rav.

  22. My first Fair Isle project was a pair of children's socks I test knitted for a friend, gauge was awful, could not get it right. My last one was a scarf for my granddaughter, a much better outcome than the first. It just takes practice.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just this morning I was thinking about making a yoked pullover for my baby due in November. It was a favorite pattern of my mom's and I've made them for my boys. Now I'm having a girl and it would be fun to pick very different colors!

  25. I haven't done any fair isle since a baable hat last Christmas. Might be time to do some more colorwork...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have six copies of Staci's color your cowl coloring page in front of me. I am astounded by the difference just one color or one gradient makes! I am going to do her cowl, but not when it is 105 degrees in GA! I will be doing it immediately when the temps come down a bit. In the summer, I generally knit lace and small things like washclothes and socks! Thank you for the great giveaways and for Staci's wealth of knowledge!

  160. I have a project called On the Spice Market that I have been working on...

  161. I have never done fair isle, so I think it would be something small like a hat or the cowl above. If I graduate to something more difficult, then I think perhaps some Christmas stockings may be in order!

  162. I made a dog sweater for my sister's dog and matching mittens for whoever walks the dog - started when it was still snowing in Germany and just sent them off 2 weeks ago. Would love to have the beautiful needle set for future projects!

  164. I am currently knitting Shersocks which are two color fair isle and they are looking great! These are only my second fair isle project and I'm still knitting a bit tight on the floats but improving!

  165. I'm a fairly new knitter but I might try some Christmas coasters in color work that I have a pattern for. Hefb1 on Rav

  166. I have never been brave enough to try fair isle. I will start with a simple cowl or hat. I do feel the urge to do it. I just have to START.

  168. Thank you for this opportunity! I am working on the Ellen Cardigan from Berocco and can't wait to CO the Colorwork Cowl (very pink knits) and Ambiguous by Michelle Hunter. Here's hoping for this great set of needles! Mariaeb on Ravelry

  169. Recently worked on Fair Isle mittens. 1 down and 1 to go. The Color Me Cowl has caught my eye!

  170. I haven't tried Fair Isle yet, but plan to try it this Summer. Probably a hat to get the hang of it. Eventually, I want to knit Christmas stockings.

  171. Love the first cowl - Color my Cowl and the socks. Will try one of those in the near future and it will be my first fair isle project. Have always loved them but am intimidated by them.

  174. I have a pair of simple colorwork mitts in my work bag. Once I've finished a couple sets I'll cast on a crazy cat lady sweater.

  176. I love the Color My Cowl. I haven't tried Fair Isle knitting yet, so think this might be the perfect place to start! Love that there is a tutorial to go with it, too!

  177. I've had Ambiguous in my queue for a while now, this is inspiration to cast on so I will be ready to wear it come winter.

  178. I've done a couple of your featured projects in the past. I am probably going to do the colorful cowl, I really like it. However I need to finish Christmas Stockings before I start anything else. 13 and a half of 17 done. I should've started them when the grandkids were first born instead of waiting until there were 17 of them. Lol.

  179. I absolutely love the Ambigious cowl-I would live to make one for myself!

  180. Giraffes at Sunset mittens, if I'm ever brave enough to try them! Happy World Giraffe Day!

  181. The last ones I made were self-designed set of coasters, but before that I knitted Tam C, from Three Tams by Angela Sixian Wu.

  182. I would love to knit with these needles.The last fair isle item was a hat for my son. It has 10 colours. Ended up knitting two because of gauge issues.

  183. I guess it is time to do my first Fair Isle- I love Staci's tutorials so I guess the Cowl will be the best place to start. Would love those new needles!

  184. I have been wanting to try the cubics for awhile. I enjoy doing fairisle especially in the round so I can use the 2 handed technique.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I have not yet tried Fair Isle knitting, though I have done multi-stranded crochet. i hope to try multi-stranded knitting this coming Winter.

  186. I'd really like to knit the Baable hat. I'm not sure if that is Fair Isle or not. I'm fairly new to colorwork.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Ok...my time is now. I love the Carrie socks, and since I knit a pair a month for Christmas gifts, these will be my next attempt. I will cast on for my July pair.
    Thank you for this opportunity to win these Platina needles. I have one pair and I LOVE them

  188. Just completed the Rumbus Cowl in FairIsle. This is a newer pattern on Ravelry and patterns are also available for matching arm warmers and leg warmers.

  189. I most recently completed Southernmost mittens. Most of my knitting is stranded colorwork. I just love it. Also, my favorite needles are dreamz dpns.

  190. I have knit a Fair Isle yoke sweater and have the Orkney Fair Isle Tam by Elizabeth Lovick in the queue. A new set of fabulous Knitter's Pride needles would certainly inspire!

  191. My very first project, beyond dishcloths was a fair isle hat. After I finish the sweater I'm working on now I plan to knit a fair isle sweater. It is one of the reasons I got into knitting. I think they are so beautiful.

  192. There has been a cardigan fair isle cardigan in my queue for quite some time...Iðunn by Ragga Eiríksdóttir, published in Knitty Winter 2012. One of these days I'll get to it!

  193. I tried Fair Isle for the first time this year and knitted a pair of fingerless mittens. It was so rewarding seeing the pattern emerge after each row.

  194. I knitted a hat with a Norwegian snowflake stranded colorwork pattern. Loved knitting it!

  196. I've never tried fair isle yet, although "very pink's" cowl looks amazing and perhaps doable!
