Fair Isle Class!

Ever wanted to know how to knit Fair Isle (two color knitting).  Well here is your chance!

The first part of the class is learning a comfortable way to hold your two different colors of yarn.  You can hold one color in your right hand and one in your left, both in your right hand or both in your left hand.  There is also a gadget called the yarn guide to put over your finger to hold the two colors.
