Fair Isle is not for the fair at heart. After knitting 3/4 of a sleeve I knew I had to rip. I watched a video at Philosopher's Wool. It is a two handed technique that is 'tres cool'. It shows how to knit with 2 colors and not have long strings in the back. She called those long strings some fancey word...I can't remember it.
I practiced and then began the sleeve again...what a big difference!!!
Can't seem to upload the images, will try again tomorrow.
