Throwing Caution to the Wind

When a new yarn line comes out, I used to order color cards but to hell with that. Since I have become such a big spender, these days I just order a ball of the colors I am interested in and then lie to myself by thinking that one day I will use them in some fair isle project. These balls of the new sport weight Knit Picks City Tweed are nice. Really, really nice. It would be a shame to have them to disappear forever into the stash boxes. I need a plan for these babies. Something small. Something Fair Isle.


  1. What's Fair Isle? Just trying to figure out if I should calls dibs on the yellow one.

  2. Fair Isle is when you use lots of colors to make a small design of some kind.Like painting with yarn. If you just like the yellow, I'll make you something small out of it.

  3. I am just learning so much about knitting. Maybe one day I'll pick up those pointy stick things and give it a try...For now I'll keep to my cross stitch projects and then hopefully on to the next adventure with daddio, quilting.
