Gabes Knitting Pictures

This winter I have been having a go at trying to use different colours in my knitting. Previously I've just been doing plain colour or getting interesting colours by using varigated wool.

Knitting stitch - embroidering detail on afterwards using knitting stitch. NOT a good idea for a dimly lit lounge and black wool!! A bit too fiddly for my liking

Fairaisle - where the different strands of wool are looped behind right across the row.

Intarsia - where you have separate balls of wool for each block of colour. Can get a bit messy/tangly but you dont get distortion of the image because the wool isnt pulled behind it.
