How To Video: Carry Your Yarn When Knitting Stripes!

New Video Alert!  Today I wanted to share a technique that I get asked about all the time when people see me knitting stripes….how do you avoid all those extra ends to weave in???

Today, I’ll show you on one of my summer sweaters in progress, how to carry the extra color up the side of your work, so that things stay tidy, and you don’t have to spend DAYS weaving in ends when you finish knitting!

 

So what do you think?  Will you try this technique the next time you use stripes?  Leave a comment and let us know if this will help you avoid “stripe fear” because of all the ends!

Happy Summer Knitting!

Tees, Tanks, Shells & More!

I happen to LOVE summer knitting.  Give me a great cotton, linen or rayon, and I’m a happy camper!  Plus, this type of casual sweater fits my wardrobe & lifestyle so well!  That’s why we are running a special take-home Yarn Tasting to kickoff this Summer Sweater Knit-A-Long!

***Also, Save the Date, because we will be Celebrating all the fabulous Summer Sweaters made with a Sangria Sweater Party on August 15th!***

Now through June 16th, you can get a tasting kit for just $10, that has a swatch quantity of 5 of our favorite summer yarns.  This gives you a chance to try before you commit on your sweater!  They are listed in the photo below!  If you purchase your sweater quantity by Tuesday June 16th, you can have that $10 off of your purchase, for trying the yarn in the kit.  We are even special ordering colors if we don’t have your favorite in stock!  Just meet the deadline of next Tuesday in making your decision!
