Yarn Selection

Posted by mtmom on October 24, 2007

I have made my selections for the colors for the next pattern bands on my Fair Isle sampler scarf.  bags of yarn

The patterns and original color-names/charts come from Sarah Don’s “Lady’s Jacket” in her 1979 book, Fair Isle Knitting. (see B/W photo from blog post of about 2 weeks ago for an image of the jacket)

These will be for the border and peeries  border yarns

and these for the main patterns (2 different schemes alternate in the main body).  yarns for main patterns

Choosing colors may be the most fun part of planning!  Then, seeing the color patterns emerge under my needles is the best part of execution.  Definitely.

Now, to the swift!  (How exciting!)
