Review quote

If you've been knitting for years but have never attempted Fair Isle, this is a great way to spice up your work. There are so many possible color combinations, you can create a custom garment for every season. - AllFreeKnitting.com If Alice [Starmore] is the queen, I suspect Mary Jane is the princess of Fair Isle knitting. I love her color sense. - Knitting at Large
