It looks like quite a large collection to me, and beautiful. I wouldn't like to be knitting against the clock but I wish I could knit faster than I do.

Rebecca

Beautiful bag and such lovely yarn colours. I like the idea of people bringing me food while I knit!

Charity

What a lovely bag! I look forward to hearing about your Fair Isle experience - I haven't braved that world just yet. :0)

I'm probably putting this in too late for you to see it. In the long ago 70s (that's 19...) I knitted up a couple of fairisle patterns from Patricia Roberts books. I still have the books but not the beautiful sleeveless pullovers. I remember that once one had mastered the stranding across the back technique it wasn't difficult at all. So good luck. This time round I'm being less ambitious and sticking largely to socks, gloves/mittens and scarves.

I am always amazed at the stories as to what people used to be able to knit in such short periods of time when money was coming from it. It really is quite amazing and something that I just can't imaging people doing in the same way today.
