I’m starting a second topic because I need help in both categories! This is something that is driving me crazy. I’ve knitted with two strands of yarn in the past and most recently was doing Phentex for slippers…that horrible nylon stuff that wears like forever but is terrible to work with. I didn’t have much trouble when holding two strands of that, or maybe it’s just because I HATE WORKING WITH IT ANYWAY! but it does really make great, durable slippers.
So, now I"m starting to make a criss cross shoulder thingy and it calls for two strands of knitting worsted to be worked and I have them in separate bags, but the actual strands are twisting and sort of know up. I have to keep stopping and unraveling them. ThIs is not only irritating but very time consuming also. If anyone can give me some hints on how to improve this situation, I’d really appreciate it.
Somewhere I seem to remember hearing one person say that if you are working with two strands of yarn that you should roll them into one ball to start with. Great! I think of it now after doing about six inches on this pattern.
Thanks for you help, fellow crafters.
