Design your own Fair Isle sweater.
The infinite color possibilities in Fair Isle knitting can be intimidating!
For Janine Bajus, it all started with the gift of a colorful Fair Isle cardigan from Shetland in 1964. Today playing with color remains the theme of her fiber life, and she teaches workshops introducing others to the joys of modern Fair Isle knitting. To quote her book, The Joy of Color: Fair Isle Knitting Your Way, “Her goal is to provide the information that people need to knit their own stranded garments, whether traditional or wild, subdued or saturated, from a pattern or self-designed.” Janine lives in Berkeley, California, surrounded by books and fiber.
