Block a Week Friday

Block 1 

The first block in the book, this is a fairisle block and the contrast yarn is carried along the back of the work.  Easy but a little bit fiddly and because there are three colours you end up with 22 ends which take forever to weave in.

Rating - easy
Curl - 1
size - 6"x 6"
ends - 22

  1. Oh, I love this kind of knitting, it reminds me of clothes I had when I was little.

  2. Your knitting is so beautiful! Have a nice weekend Linda.

  3. 'Tis another pretty block. I do love fairisle patterns. When I was a wee li'l girl my mum always seemed to be knitting a fairisle garment for me.

  4. Lovely,very cute!
    Have a nice weekend.:*

  5. Pretty. That's like tapestry crochet where you have to carry the threads and which doesn't make any sense to me at all. I would probably end up with a big mess. :) Have a great weekend. Tammy

  6. Oh, beautyful - all of them. I like this coloured look! Have a great weekend! Sabine.

  7. Oh Linda, that is such a cute block! Are you going to make a blanket when they're all finished?

  8. Hi Linda, I hope you had a nice weekend! These blocks are really pretty.
