Risa is rising

I have never done  Fair Isle socks and I can tell you is a lot more difficult than I want to admit. Nevertheless if you are accustomed to make socks in this fashion , you will find it a breeze.  I started this project on DPNs, but quickly decided to go on two circulars.  The circulars are  US 1 as well , but 2.5 mm instead of 2.25 mm.  I had to rip to the beginning of the Color pattern, because I was not able to let the floats relax.  Actually with two circulars I can wear them after a few rows or every row and see how they are fitting. I say it is better than making socks that do not fit.  I am enjoying the pattern more, and now that I figured how to update the file on Ravelry, I am a lot happier. It came with the right amount of stitches. This is my relaxing project and I can tell you it is fun. Hope to have more pictures as the week comes along.  Thanks for stopping by!
