My Fair Isle Design

I'm designing a sweater for myself, which I've never done before. I've finished the front and back and grafted the shoulder seams. I have a vision of what it's going to look like in my head and if I don't get it the first time around, I'll make some changes and try again! I love the fair isle pattern. It's actually my first time working with fair isle and I spent several hours on an Excel spreadsheet perfecting my idea. I love it! Wish me luck on the sleeves. I want to try some short-row shaping to create a puffed sleeve. I've never done it before, but love trying new things!
