fair isle knitted neck warmer... x

 
I'm really enjoying knitting up the neck warmer pattern from Nikki Trench's book.
Thank goodness I knitted up the swatches first to practise the techniques of fair isle knitting.
Still wish I could have used 100 percent wool for this project to give the neck warmer a more authentic fair isle feel.
I have substituted some of the colour combinations as not all of the colours recommended were available in this colour range.
(Sirdar Country Style wool blend 4 ply)
I won't know just how this will look until I have sewn in all loose ends and blocked.
