On the last Thursday of each month my local John Lewis store holds a "knit and natter". I work Thursdays and rushing into town after work, I only manage to make the last half hour of the session. It was lovely in the school holidays to have the luxury of a full two hours drinking coffee, knitting and nattering.
The photographs show the Fair Isle waistcoat I am knitting. The pattern comes from "The Traditional Sweater Book" by Madeline Weston. It is a traditional Fair Isle pattern although I have replaced the usual bright colours of red, gold, white and blue with shades of grey white and purple. The wool is 2ply jumper weight from Jamieson and Smith.
I am pleased with the pattern and the way the colours are coming together but not looking forward to having to darn in all the ends once I have finished knitting!
