February Fair Isle
A couple of years ago my husband was on a trip to France. He was sweet enough to hunt down a yarn shop and bring me back three skeins of sock yarn. Two skeins were Bergere de France Ch'7 (black and orange) and the third was Opal. I pulled those out for this month's KAL and combined them for my own Fair Isle pattern socks. Instead of trying to match the patterning by starting the Opal at the same spot on both socks, I decided to start them randomly and let the socks be a pair, but not exactly the same. I gave last month's socks away, but this pair I am keeping for myself.
