First things first. The contest. Well, I’m certainly in good company. So many of you want to master colorwork this year as well. Alright knitters, so where do we begin? Now for the winners of the Color Affection kits~
Sam ~ This year is for steeking. I love colorwork and have yet to do a sweater so this year I will do a version of Paper Dolls and steek something.
Lori ~ …. “the best tip i learned was to work with short pieces of wool. i love fair isle but didn’t love untangling all those strands (even two becomes a giant mess quickly). and bobbins were just as bad. so now i cut strands maybe 1 to 2 yds in length and work (holding both in my right, traditionalist here) letting the wool dangle and untangling is a breeze, the strands mostly undo themselves. then, so you won’t be bothered with millions of pieces to weave in you will want to spit splice as you go along.….”
Congratulations Sam and Lori! I have sent you confirmation emails. As soon as I hear from you your kit will be on its way.
Now for the random part of the post:
Downton Abbey. The clothes. The house. Bates & Anna. Matthew & Mary. Sigh. Watch it. You’ll be glad you did!
