When I am doing stranded knitting how do I weave in the unused color across the back? In the sock pattern I'm using they suggest to weave in the unused color when I'm doing the heel stitches ( k1,s1).:knitting:
Catching the long floats is a good idea especially in socks where a toe could catch in them. This site has a great video for two handed fair isle and there is also information on catching the long floats.http://www.philosopherswool.com/Pages/Twohandedvideo.htm
Jan,Thanks for the address to a great website. I watched the video twice, and I should be able to weave the unused yarn. I bookmarked the site so I can refer to it again.Thanks again.Quilterjanet
You're welcome! That site is how I learned to do fair isle.
I learned fair isle by following the directions in a book. I've done several pairs of fair isle socks, and my goal is to knit a fair isle sweater.
How do you post a Ravelry link?
Can pictures be posted in my reply?
