Fair Isle continues

Fair Isle continues at stix-n-stitches as more people stopped by with their completed Fair Isle hats. It is interesting to learn the history of this technique which originated in Fair Isle which is located in the United Kingdom and gained its greatest popularity when King Edward VIII at the turn of the twentieth century. It was reported in one location he wore a fair isle jumper (that's British for sweater) while playing golf and the garment became extremely popular.
