      Q&A

      Thank you to those of you who posted on the Episode thread or in the Youtube comments :) I love hearing from you!! I am convinced that I must try knitting with shetland now and I plan to swatch with the yarn I got this week. 

      My Question to you this week is: What is your most used knitting tool?

      Some of you have asked to see a video of where I live. I tried to take a few clips this week while I was out and about, but they didn't turn out so great but I will keep trying and work on putting something together very soon!

      Have a question? Ask! I'm happy to answer questions in the show.

      Other

      Technique tip-- If you find that your ssk's are not as neat as your k2tog, try working them as follows: slip one stitch knit wise, slip the second stitch purl wise, then knit these two stitches together through the back loop. Works for me!



      See you next week!
