gmKlein writes: Fair Isle has always appealed to me because it is elegant, wonderfully colorful and has symmetry that I find so pleasing to the eye. Fortunately those intricate Fair Isle designs that appear so challenging have now been demystified for me by television knit and crochet programs, and online. So, no longer afraid of Fair Isle's "Wow" designs, I am eager to dive in and try the technique. I am a somewhat novice knitter so I want to expand my technical knowledge and I also want to broaden the array of projects I try by including projects like mittens and socks. Fearless Fair Isle Knitting by Kathleen Taylor looks like a great guide to achieving both.

Monkeygrrl writes: I'm utterly rubbish @ Fair Isle, but keep attempting projects. If this book could help me not make wrinkled messes out of lovely patterns, I would give the author a big wet kiss on the mouth.
