Bored, Bored, Bored!!!

I am bored with the usual projects so I decided to try something I haven't done before. Fair Isle is something I thought would be extremely difficult but is turning out to be quite easy.

I found a little chart in a British magazine with a 10 stitch repeat pattern and decided to try it out on a pair of socks.

I had 100 grams of the pale blue and 50 grams of the beige left over from a cardigan I made last year so that's what I'm using.

My only problem thus far is that 70 stitches is too large for a sock and 60 not large enough. I think when I get to the heel flap I am going to add 4 stitches. At least the brain has to work a little.

Your sock looks great! Congrats on learning stranded colorwork. I'm hooked on it now. I've got arthritic thumbs, and I think this work is helping keep some flexibility. Cheers. Hoping TO is warmer than here in Utah (-10F).

Very Pretty! I like to do color work if I don't have to do a lot of finishing work. Socks are perfect, and it will give you something to try your sock blockers on if you get them for your b'day. Stay warm.
