Fair Isle Knitting

Fair Isle knitting, or changing colors in the row as you knit, can be a bit of a challenge. If you don't know how to knit in the continental fashion, you may wish to learn it, after you see this video. The gal is holding one color of her yarn in her right and one color in her left hand. Watch and see how much easier the knitting is that way. I have done fair isle knitting with only my right hand, but when I learned to knit continental, I was surprised how much easier it became.

This video actually shows you how to catch the loop of the yarn being carried. It is a simple thing and I have done it this way and love it. So, when I saw this video I thought I would put it on the blog.
