I’m pleased to finally announce that tomorrow will kickoff my Vintage Knitting College series, with the first post in Colorwork: 101! I’ll be talking about the very basics of stranded knitting over a few posts. Tomorrow we’ll start off with how to carry your yarn and how to keep your balls of yarn tidy and your yarn tangle-free. Then in the next few posts after that I’ll talk about keeping even tension while stranding and how it plays into beautiful colorwork, color theory with a vintage eye in mind, and tips to make the entire stranded knitting process go nice and smoothly. I’m pretty excited, I have to say!
See you tomorrow!
I’ll be following you, even though I am a pretty experienced knitter there is always something new to learn, and you take such great pictures.
That’s awesome! I look forward to your tutorial. Who doesn’t love a blog that teaches one how to do their hair AND do stranded knitting?

Yay! I want to learn how to do this! 🙂
I am so looking forward to it!
I hope I’ll be enough skillful (is it a right word?) to try it as well. I like knitting and I’ve never tried to mix colours.

I’m recently very tempted with some of the colourwork things in the new Stitch in Time Vol 2 book…so I shall be interested to see what I need to know!!

Really looking forward to this!! I’ve done a lot of colour work, but I’m looking forward to some tips!! I’ve just done a knitting post actually, you can see what I have done. Nothing on the same level as your knitting though!! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.com/
Any knitting tutorials you do, I will look forward to! I’m desperate to get past my newb status. 🙂
Hip Hip! Just ready your interview over on Kestrel Finds and Makes… It was lovely!
