    Thank you for these recommended books! Look forward to purchasing at least one of them! I am interested in knowing about how you developed the cable design on the cardigan sweater, which is a favorite of mine. Sorry I can’t remember the name of it right now. Thank you for your inspiration

    Your timing couldn’t be better! I’ve recently decided to act on my love of Fair Isle, so a book was my first investment into Fair Isle. The very first one you mentioned, actually. I waffled between it and the Starmore one. Thank you for your insight, wisdom, and all you’ve done for knitters everywhere.
