We were able to watch closely to see what she was doing, which is a great way to learn. Actions speak a thousand words as they say, and sometimes it is easier to understand when you see a demonstration. Thanks Frances for a great evening.
I am sure our hand knitters will also be able to incorporate the same techniques in their knitting. stripes are a great way of using up yarn when there isn't enough for a whole garment, and by adding bits like Frances showed us it makes for a very interesting design.
