Back To Fairisle

I picked up my Sjølingstadkofta sweater last night, after a long hiatus.  And, I immediately fell in love again.  I’ve now finished the second (and shortest) of the three charts that make up the fairisle body of the sweater, Roses.  Next up is Oak Leaves, a 60 row chart that repeats over 198 body stitches — a nice little step down from the 300+ stitches in Roses, because I’ve now separated the sleeve stitches from the body, and won’t be working them until I go back to knit the sleeves.  The yarn, Plucky’s Oxford, is a dream to knit with.  And I love fairisle.  Absolutely love it.  I can’t wait to set up for Oak Leaves and get to work!
