I'm still in the thinking about it stage. Sigh. But I have my project picked out. The northern lights mittens from Knit Picks. I just have to finish a red scarf and then I can start the mittens.

I thought I was going to do a pair of Latvian mittens. Somehow, I've ended up starting a fair isle chullo. So I'm stranded in either Peru or Fair Isle (or perhaps on a mid-Atlantic deserted island located approximately betwixt the two).

Ok! I know! I've been lax. But seeing those beautiful photos has made me want to get out the Tiffanys again. I will. I will. I will ;)

I've changed tack somewhat and am now working on a Kaffe Fasset Persian Poppy waistcoat. It is actually stranded knitting although it doesn't really look like it.

Second pair of "Stranded" socks just added to flicker pool and updated on my blog.

Could someone tell me if (technically speaking!) you're supposed to carry an unused color around even when it's not part of that row of colors? Is this the difference between intarsia/fair isle = Stranded knitting?

Just curious! I'll be over here hiding from the knitting police.

(blogger/google identity crisis just ate my first attempt at comments ... grrr!)

In Fair Isle, no and according to my Dale KAL people, no for Norwegians.

The best thing to do with the unused colour is twist it together at the beginning of the round with the other yarns, you can carry it up this way. I wish I did this with the bear sweater I made last year, I would have had so many ends that I wouldn't have had to sew in.
