I’ve tried to catch the yarn before, and just couldn’t get the hang of it, so DH’s toes will have to risk toe-cide by hanging on yarn floats. What a way to go…
I’ve got one slipper done. I thought the yarn on the inside would feel really weird, but it’s not bad. I usually have socks on too anyhow. The pattern really does make the fabric cushy.
It’s not that difficult to anchor the yarn. Just make sure it goes over the color you’re using before you start knitting the new row. It’s pretty easy to see in the video. I’ve been keeping one ball of yarn in my lap so I can undo the tangles as I go along. It’s easier that way for me, I’ve not thrown it across the room yet. When you’re ready to try it, I’ll be rooting for you. :cheering: I figure if I can do it, anyone can do it.
Next time I’m going to make striped ones. Then maybe I’ll get really brave and look at Fair Isle knitting. My hair is thinning on its own, this will probably speed up the process.
Do you have a link for the baby set? I’d love to know what it’s like.
Are you also catching that yarn as you carry it across?
– yes, I twist it every time I switch colors. I’ve done different colors in Tunisian crochet and this is quite similar, maybe the same even, it was the ends of I couldn’t quite figure out how to deal with.
