March 19: I learned the most awesome fair isle technique this morning: Two Handed Fair Isle. I’ve only gone two rounds using this technique, but it’s pretty darn amazing so far. I was concerned about some of the long floats on this project (although not overly so since I plan to line the purse so I would be hiding the floats) and now I don’t have to worry about them! I was excited about fair isle before but now I’m just ecstatic! See the difference? The bottom part is with the floats and the top part is with the new technique.
March 21: And the body is finished! I’m going to have to figure out how to do the crochet parts for around the edges and the strap so I may put this on hold for a little while until I figure that out.
