WIP Wednesday - Fair Isle Workshop


My fair isle knitting gets a bit “bubbly”, so I enrolled in a workshop at my local yarn store (LYS).
This is the link to the pattern at Ravelry:

This is the teacher’s sample.

The beginning of my sample is in the top corner.

Revamping Furniture

 I have my ol’ man working. He’s  as happy as can be!

He is resealing (sanding, staining & sealing) Janet’s old knitting table. 

I just sealed my new sock machine table, but the colour Paul used looks so nice that I might sand & stain mine, too.

 I’m part of a sock machine group.
Joining up with like-minded people is the only way I ‘llget any good
 at doing things on my sock machine…
Today 7 of us go together.
What an education!
What fun!
