Green is in the mistletoe and red is in the holly
Silver in the stars above that shine on everybody
Gold is in the candlelight and crimson in the embers
White is in the winter night that everyone remembers
White is in the Winter from And Winter Came (Enya)
Finally winter has come to Southern Germany and finally I have finished Lindisfarne by Marie Wallin from the Rowan Magazine 58.
Lindisfarne was my number 1 of this seasons magazine. It is knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed Aran and Rowan Fazed Tweed. It is worked completely in fair-isle technique, but only the central panel is showing the fair-isle pattern on the right side. The sleeves and the rest of the body is worked in reverse fair-isle.
I’m really glad to finish it right in time to wear it now, after the temperatures are dropping below zero.
Here is a detail of the central panel, worked in fair-isle.
And here is close-up of the reverse fair-isle:
