I loved the tips for knitting stripes in the rounds. Jogless joins look so much nicer, and she offers several different methods to try.

Slip stitch colorwork is one of my favorite techniques. This pullover does a fantastic job of looking complicated, even though the colorwork technique is quite easy.

  1. I love color in knitting. Currently I’m working on a pair of self-striping socks. Watching for the next color to start keeps my up late knitting. Just one more stripe I say…

    Oh, and how did I manage to miss that you started a videocast? I must have been swiping too fast thru my blog feed. I’ve added you to my youtube subscriptions and look forward to checking it out.

  2. Color makes life more fun, and I love using color techniques in knitting. I love both the challenge and the interest.

  3. I love the endless possibilities of working with different colours… it brings garments to life.

  4. When I learned color knitting, it changed my knitting world. I have broadened my horizons and have knitted things that at one time I didn’t think we’re possible.

  5. I have knitted for many years and have enjoyed using colors in my knitting. It is a way of letting tension go like watching a river flow.

  6. I love all kinds of colorwork, I think my favorite is stranded, though. I like to use very fine yarns, and colorwork keeps it interesting.

  7. I would love to win this book – it looks like there are some really great patterns – and a lot of good information! One can always learn something new!

  8. Knitting is relaxing and thrilling all at once. I love learning new skills and have learned how to hold 2 colors at the same time but haven’t made anything yet!
