Fair Isle

August 27, 2012

I found this pink fair-isle sweetie today in the local op shop the other day.  It is a lovely soft angora and although it appears have shrunk it a little in the wash,  the "felting" simply makes it thicker and warmer to keep little bodies snug and warm.   Lucky for us really as it is now the perfect size for my little girl.

My nanna used to knit the most amazing Fair Isle sweaters.  In all fairness I never really appreciated their complexity when I was little, but now I am just loving them.

Today was a bit chilly and with quite a breeze so it was perfect for our almost daily trip to the duck pond.  Didn't stop her wanting to have bare feet though!
