Did any of you see this program, broadcast here in the SF Bay Area on March 31? I have always been a little afraid of color knitting, but after seeing this program, and especially on segment within it, I am absolutely squirming to try.
The segment that got me worked up was with Annie Modesitt, who is one of my favorite designers. Seems I am always attracted to her designs. She showed Shay Pendray a pair of fingerless gloves done in three kinds of color work – kind oa sample, as Shay pointed out. One yarn was variegated and one was solid, thereby giving the impression of doing more colorwork than two yarns might otherwise achieve. Annie demonstrated each of the three ways, with tips and tricks – and I didn’t think it looked that hard. And dang, those fingerless gloves were cute, too!
Knitting Daily has the pattern for the gloves available for free as a PDF on its website. I’m gonna give ‘em a try. Anyone wanna join me? At least in cyberspace?
