I did a little bit of fair isle in the sweater I finished right before I started the Year of Sweaters, and wanted to do just a bit more. Not too much. I wasn’t feeling up to more than two colors. So I choose this jacket from DROPS. I also choose teal and white as the colors, and only realized once it was done that it makes a very Hanukkah-appropriate sweater.

The pros

  1. I love the way the glitter turned out!
  2. I am no longer as intimidated by fair isle!

The cons

  1. The glitter was a pain to knit with (literally)
  2. The glitter was a pain to knit with (figuratively)

Conclusion: I like the way it turned out. I still need to press the neck band a bit to it doesn’t flop under, but I wore it to work today and got lots of compliments, even with the floppy collar.
