Since the fair isle sweater, I seem to have just gone crazy for colorwork. I just got Vol 3 of Vogue Knitting Stitchionary, and I love it. It's just what I wanted. I wish there were several more books like it so I could have a collection of thousands of colorwork patterns. But in the meantime I am using it to make some fair isle gloves. I'm knitting them flat because I didn't want to figure out how to do the thumb gusset while working fair isle. I'll sew up the side and leave a space for the thumb and then add the thumb and fingers on after, I think/hope. This is where I am so far. Just started last night. I LOVE the yarn I used for this. Frog Tree Alpaca's Merino. Alpaca makes me a little itchy, though not on my hands I guess. I used it for the headbands below, and I bought some more as comfort yarn right after dropping my dead bunny at the vet (post coming soon).
These are a couple of head bands I did for my upcoming ski trip. One for me and one for my companion, I guess. I got the snowflake motif from this site . I LOVE the yarn I used for this.
And this slip stitch pattern. I love slip stitch colorwork. So easy because you only do one color per row. I got the pattern here. But we aware that there is a typo on rounds 8 and 9, and the asterisk should be after the first slipped stitch. Also, worsted weight on size 10.5s is very loose. I used size 8s and cast on 90 stitches. Karabella Aurora 8 is the gray and Dolce Mohair Rigato is the self-striping mohair/acrylic blend.
