A note from Ruth……
Who is ready for the challenge of the Musk Ox Herd Head Band? It's debatable if this is still called fair isle since it's exceeding the basic rule of only two colours per round and this head band requires several rounds with three colours and one round with (yay!) four colours!
But like many things in life, the bigger the challenge the greater the satisfaction of success. So let's grow some knitted muskies! I look forward to sharing the fun with you on April 15.
