After my first fair isle project many years ago (more than I care to think about), I was hooked. One aspect of fair isle knitting that I find so appealing is the ability to blend colors to create a truer reproduction of the colors that I see in nature. These four designs of hat and mittens were inspired by some of the autumn colors of western Montana.
Cable, Montana is a ghost town now. It might not have been born at all if not for three prospectors who bedded down for the night. They woke the next morning to find that their horses had wandered off. In the search to find them, they came upon a vertical pillar of quartz that extended down about 1,000 feet. They called their discovery the Atlantic Cable Lode, a tribute to the laying of the transoceanic cable, and the town was born.
Winters in Montana can be quite chilly it is always good to have a little something underneath your coat or around your neck to help ward off the nippy weather. These scarves and shawls are designed to be versatile, able to be worn under a coat or as an accessorizing layer around the office or at a party.
