Fair Isle Knitting

Let me just say that I might be a bit slow in discovering this wonderful way of knitting. But I now love it!!! It is a style of knitting in colorwork that allows you to knit with multiple colors of yarn at once. I've never been brave enough to try this before, and I fell in love with a blanket pattern I stumbled across. While trying to figure everything out I came across a blog that called the blanket the "pattern from hell." At first I agreed, but now that I understand what's going on and how to read the pattern I have to disagree! The Love of Knitting pattern "Hot Chocolate Swirl" is simply devine. :) I just wish I had more time to work on in, but here is a little sneak preview ;)
