Bully for Bauhaus
I am pleased and proud to have my Bauhaus Fair Isle sweater included in the Spring '07 Interweave Knits magazine. I love fair isle knitting , it is my very favorite thing to do. I realize that many people regard fair isle knitting as quaint and old fashioned, which is one of the reasons that I like it. However when I was dreaming up this sweater I wanted folks to remember that at one time it was on the cutting edge of alter-fashion worn by the hippest art students in the world! While browsing our well worn copy of Bauhaus I found many pictures of the students wearing fair isle and other stranded knitting. So take a peek and delight in the unexpected!
