I cast-on my Sweaters from Camp KAL project which is the Northwest Sunset Fair Isle Vest . This is my first Fair Isle project so it has been slow going. I have been practicing to figure out which "hand hold" technique will work best for me. I am a Continental knitter (picker) and tried holding one strand in my left hand and the other strand in my right hand. HATED IT!!! I settled in holding the background color on top (over) in my usual Continental hold in my left hand. The second strand (color pattern) is on the bottom (under) also in my left hand but I drop it when not in use, i.e., I pick up the wool and throw it then drop it. This is working very well for me.
I cast-on using the German Twisted Cast-on (sometimes called Elastic Long Tail) and completed 12 rows of the ribbing (k1,p1) and a few rows of the color pattern. The German Twisted Cast-on provides elasticity and puts a purl bump on both sides to prevent rolling of the edge.
Janet released FLAK Part 6 this morning. So much to knit, so little time.
