New Fair Isle Book

I went to the book store today and found a new (different, probably not new) Fair Isle book: Fair Isle Knitting by Sarah Don. What's nice about this one is that it gives patterns for simple sweaters - man's pullover, v-neck vest, cardigan, child's cardigan, etc - but it also gives sample fair isle patterns so you can design your own colorwork pattern. One thing I liked about Henry VIII is that it's not the same pattern repeated over and over - it's a series of 5 different patterns across the front of the sweater. I might just design my own fair isle . . . .

And the book wasn't very expensive.
