Fair Isle sweater swatch made into a cap

I finished my swatch......and my son loves it!!
There are some long floats in the beginning but they are holding their shape.
A big 'Thank You!' to the yahoo group that helped me get past some concerns. I am now ready to write the sweater pattern so I can begin my son's sweater.

Very, very nice cap. You did a wonderful job! A matching sweater will be perfect, and how happy your son will be to have these beautiful gifts of love.

lurching out feeling painfully behind

mmm, I love the swatch/hat anyway.

Love you!

Hey Miss Scarlett and Vee, thank you for your wonderful comments!
My son does truly appreciate the things I make him.
I didn't even think I was writing a pattern since it was for my son ~ but I guess I am!
It will be an experience as I venture on writing up the sweater.

What a wonderful idea for a swatch. It is beautiful. That is such creative thinking on your part. Great job! I have been wanting to learn Faire Isle. I started going to a knitting group in Seattle that has a Nordic theme. It has been so inspiring.
