I have been through a very looong sock knitting period. When I look at my Ravelry project page there are so many socks, and some of the patterns I have worked two, and even three times. I was definitely ready for something new and challenging when I visited a very fine yarn shop in a neighboring town.
The Folklore jacket designed by Christel Seyfarth was hanging on a dummy and the owner had knit it herself. I tried it on, and it looked fine on me. I was very confident when I ordered the kit, however when I opened the box, I admit my spirit sank.
And knit forwards, after all, it is only fair Isle. The patterns are Faeroese.
