Fair Isle Cardigan and today's pages

Today's journal pages: Not so great, just documentation.
Last August I started this cardigan. I used info from a lot of different patterns and came up with my own. I relied heavily on Alice Starmore's, Book of Fair Isle Knitting, for the stitch patterns. I love this sweater. It fits really well, it's warm, and it's surprisingly


lightweight considering how much yarn is in it. I used Harrisville designs shetland for most of it, with a little bit of Knitpicks Pallets thrown in (shame on me!)
