There's something very addictive about Fair Isle.. it keeps you knitting and knitting, with promises of full revelation.
After the bottom Fair Isle chart, I buckled down for the tedium of white stockinette knitting. Figuring it would take awhile, Baby Norgi became my subway project. It was 100 degrees out, but there I was, subway knitting to and from work, anticipating days and days of imperceptible progress. But then it was done in no time! Gotta love baby sweaters.
Here's an (unblocked) reindeer.
With the top chart completed, there is just the neck shaping to complete the body. Unbelievably speedy!
Then, two sleeves and the inevitable cutting.
