I thought I should photograph some of my older Fair Isle jumpers before they disintegrate. Mind you, a couple of them are nearly twenty years old and still going strong.

This is the first one I ever made. It's just a combination of commercial yarns that were locally available.

This is an allover pattern knitted in Jamieson and Smith Shetland yarn.

And this one I made from bits of leftover Shetland yarn, but there was not enough to do an extra pattern on the body, so it is not really long enough. The background colours were not quite right so the pattern vanishes a bit at one point.

Wow. I do like where the pattern "vanishes" on the last sweater. Those are fabulous!

That's very nice of you to like the vanishing pattern. I am most appreciative of all your kind words.


These are amazing!
