Talk about Stripes

Frances came again in May and talked about stripes.  Not just changing colour, but a way to intoduce pattern into your knitting by knitting "fancy" stripes.

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.
