Concluding our August look at back-to-school bulky yarns, this week's newsletter is entitled "One-Night Strands." I am, of course, referring to yarns you can strand together to produce bulky, quick-knitting projects!
Not only is stranding good for producing quick projects, but it is also a fantastic way to introduce subtlety of color and texture without complicated stitches or color charts. To learn how you can use this technique to its fullest -- and avoid the potential pitfalls -- read this week's article.
