Fair Isle Vest Yarn and Lace Cowl

I'm getting ready to begin a fair isle knitted vest. Big venture for me, but I thought wintertime would be a good time to begin.  I haven't knitted fair isle anything in such a long time and I'm really looking forward to it.  I used to knit fair isle a lot and have made a couple sweaters, socks and mittens.  Alice Starmore is so inspiring!  Anyway, this may turn into a long epic saga style project, but I'm going to document my progress along the way on here.   Here's my Craftsy Affiliate link for the Fair Isle Vest Class  if you'd like to take a look.  Mary Jane Mucklestone is a beautiful knitter and wonderful instructor too.  I've really enjoyed what I've watched so far of the class. 
I'm really excited about my winter wheat cowl!  This is the first one I've made and I wasn't sure if I'd like to wear something like this, but I tried it on and it fits comfortably and I'll wear it :)  Wendy Knits Lace is where I got the pattern.  Fun pattern.     

The lace knitting and yarn in detail.  I really like the color.  I hardly ever choose yellows, but I jumped out of my box of purple and pink and tried it. 

The online Needlework Show finished yesterday and I thought it was a great show!  Lots of designers and new products/designs.  This is my latest pattern set that I'll be sending out to the distributors soon.  They're fun and quick little needlecase projects.    Hope you have a great weekend!
