Started the Fair Isle Section!

I started the fair isle section on Mirepoix - as this is a pretty small gauge and none of the floats are carried over more than 4 stitches, I haven't been doing anything special to strand them and I think it looks a little loose on the wrong side but still OK. I guess that is better than being too tight and puckering on the right side.

Oh, I'm so jealous you're done with the ribbing. I forced myself to take mine in the car to Rhinebeck, but I only got an inch or so done b/c I just hate it!!

I am up to 6.5 inches of the ribbing I am not looking forward to the sleeves.

Looks great so far. And I noticed when I first started the fair isle part, that the ribbing on the bodice causes the floats on the first inch or so to pucker in, so don't worry about it. Once you get past the point of the ribbing having an effect, it'll all smooth out :)
