Sun! The first in weeks. Sunny, but still not warm, so Wee Fair Isle socks are just the ticket, not too tall, but enough to keep the draft off your ankles. I especially like wearing clogs with these, because then you can see the sassy Schiaparelli pink heels. I’ve used Harrisville Shetland, which comes in a great selection of colors. I’ve done something not quite according to the fair isle “rules” … can you spot what it is? I’m all for breaking rules when it doesn’t hurt anyone.
And guess what? I’ll be teaching a Fair Isle Sock class at Vogue Knitting LIVE in LA! Yes I will…going back home to the west coast September 23-25th. You can make some socks just like this…or design your own custom pair, I’ll show you how. Plus there are all kinds of fantastic classes ( I’m teaching 2 others) and glittering “knitterati” to swoon over; Kaffe Fassett, Meg Swanson, Trisha Malcom, Nicky Epstein, Cirilia Rose, Cookie A., Clara Parkes, Mary Lynn Patrick and on and on and on!! In a week or so, I’ll be giving a way a FREE PASS to the fabulous Marketplace, held on Saturday and Sunday….so stay tuned and tell your friends!
