Travelling knit

In the style of ‘Amélie from montmartre’ – The French famous? Film (remember, the garden gnome!) This is my last project in progress : the Fair Isle by Wendy Baker. It took a ride on the beach of Malo-les-Bains (near Dunkerque :  in the pics, you can see the Ocean…yes, the clearest lines on the background !) This is my firstFair Isle, the challenge is big! I chose other colors as the original model (light gray), the yarns comes from London: Rowan Scottish Tweed 4 Ply, thin (knit it with 3mm needles -Size 2½ US) but the subtle blends of color and beautiful!
Note that for the back, a very interesting but technical point (“Fancy rib“) that needs a little concentration … I’m hoping I coult finish the project before the summer (around August here?).
