Stranded color work continues

This is the started brim of a hat pattern that came with my Craftsy class on Fair Isle knitting.  It's kind of cool because it is knit 2 purl 2 ribbing but switching colors.  I 'm glad I didn't try this at first because it was challenging enough to get the hang of doing a knit stitch with my not usual hand.  Managing purling with my left and knitting with my right with two yarns going was another awkward thing to get the hang of.  But it is well worth the effort!  I can't wait to get to the next sections which are an even cooler looking Baltic braid and then reindeer motifs.  I am almost as obsessed with this as I was when I got bit with the quilting bug 15 years ago.
