Update on Changing Colors

Posted by Caroline Hershey

After watching the youtube video again, I thought I should say how I do the color change. Contrary to the video, I hold the new color in my left hand, current color in right and make about four sitches as they illustrate, then switch colors with old in left hand and new becomes current color in right hand and knit about four stitches carrying the yarn this way. The yarns seem more secure. At least in the video you can see the action of the hands as you make the change which would be very difficult to describe with words. Hope this helps and doesn’t confuse.

Socks and Cattails?

Socks that last and last and last

cattailsHow come the cat thinks it’s all about her? I’m talking about the Regia sock yarns. These in the photo are some of the Kaffe Fassett Regia yarns which I have had 2-3 years. Over winter they are one of my favorite socks and get worn once a week for sure and washed and dried in the machine. They just keep going and going.

 Here they are without the cat running interference.

 In one of the recent posts I talked about changing colors and weaving in the yarn ends as you go. Here’s a youtube video of changing colors.

The way I accomplish it is almost the same.

Looky! Looky!

mitts

Almost finished and feeling pretty good about not wasting any of that yarn. Just missing the second thumb. Weather outside feels like I will appreciate them in the next day or two. I really like the longer cuff. There always seems to be a gap between coat sleeve and glove/mitten but not with these. And I see I still have some ends to run under. Even though I had loose ends with every color change you see, it wasn’t bad for most of the mittens because I used the technique we learned when doing mitered squares so no ends in the end.  smiley1 And if you look closely you can see our kitty ready to leap into this photo.
