I absolutely love the look of Fair Isle. Look at the lovely designs that Karen Ratto Whooley has created in single crochet. These designs are in a book titled Fair Isle for Crochet. I bought this book recently and would love to dive into one of the designs. I think that my favorite afghan is the lovely snowflakes on light blue. Beautiful!
Hmmm...maybe rather than jumping into a full afghan project (which I don't have the time for now), I could take one snowflake motif and work it into a square or rectangular block for a Warm Up American block. Tomorrow I'll spend some time with the book again.
