I cast on about 32 stitches and then followed the Fair Isle charts working in the round on double pointed needles. Then I sewed and cut the steeks. After, I embroidered each swatch while enjoying the snowy, rainy, sleety day snug inside our little farmhouse with Julia reading a book by my side. I picked up the stitches around all the edges and did mitered garter and reverse stockinette stitch ridges in different colors.
After:This one has duplicate stitch on the swatch and some whip stitch embroidery on the border.
After:This one has chain stitch, running stitch (over the chain stitching), and french knots.
I think it's amazing what anyone can do to transform a piece of two color Fair Isle with a bit of embroidery. I hope you try it one day!
Enjoy your day and may it be filled with lots of hearts.
