 First Post

Hi everyone. I've been lurking for awhile and enjoying all your FO's.
I'm a Mom of 7. Our latest addition, our 5th daughter, arrived this past November. I love baby knits when I want to try out a new technique, so here's my first fair isle attempt. It's from the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino book, knit up in Baby Cashmerino. I really enjoyed watching the pattern as it came together and have already picked up more yarn to knit the larger fair isle cardi from Simply Baby for my 3 year old daughter.
