finished Fair Isle knitting




Finally finished,


after almost a year of intermittent knitting


the waistcoat is done. I like the colours, the fair isle patterns, the ribbing and the pockets


but.....now it is finished, I realise it really is just a bit too big. 

Sigh. 

I knitted the smallest size, the pattern is from this book, but I neglected to read the bit telling me the actual measurements of the finished garment. I'll remember to do that another time.


Now I'm off to do some very plain, single colour knitting for a change.
