Faux Fair Isle

Apparently, I'm not knitting Fair Isle at all.

My composed knits are just knitting stranded colourwork, and there are GRAND debates all over the internet about what you're actually allowed to call Fair Isle. Fair Isle is a type of stranded colourwork, but not all stranded colourwork is Fair Isle. And you can have woven colourwork... don't get me started.


If you are interested in Fair Isle and knitting accuracy, first of all, I apologize. Then I direct you to this fantastic blog, Knitting in Colour so you can read the entries on Fair Isle vs stranded colourwork parts one and two.
