Stranded Knitting Presentation at LI Knitting Guild

I’d like to send out a big, warm “Thank You!” to everyone at the Long Island Knitting Guild.  This past Friday, I presented my talk to them, “Stranded on Long Island – Tips and Tricks for Developing Your Very Own Stranded Knitting Obsession“.  I really had a wonderful time.  Every single one of those knitters was as sweet as sugar! Hopefully, I won a few new stranded knitting converts, too.

Sorry you couldn’t all be there.  Maybe next time!  For now, I’ll share just a few of my slides, to give you a taste:

knitting color value placement

The placement of color values – light motifs on dark backgrounds, or dark motifs on light backgrounds – can be simply a matter or taste…or, with some motifs, it can make a huge difference!
