OK, I get started on the wristwarmers and make a video about the stranding part. If you think you can learn of that I am happy to help.

I had that conversation about "how on earth do you do this" with several people lately, especially on this project on the train and they said they had not seen the technique. Maybe it is out there as a video and I will just add another one. But that is not so bad, really.

I think it is nothing special, but that's just me.

I'll get back to you in a few days with a video, I hope.

This is such nice work! Very even, very flat, not lumpy! Great! You should be very proud!

Hi!
I made my videos for the stranding. We are mixing them down tomorrow and I will upload them to youtube. The link I will present here, of course.

I hope my method is understandable at all. It is self-invented like a lot of my knitting technique. But I did put it in two videos to show.

Video No. 1 is up
Hi!
My video for stranded knitting is on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9cE4FMl7R4

This is the video for the knit side. I will upload the purl-video soon.

If I could only knit English style I would follow the method of philosopher's wool. But since I knit Continental only at this point, this is my only method

Just try it, it is much less effort, than you all think, really!

Thank you sooooooo much for sharing videos of your stranding techniques!

I've just started my first stranding project (it's time to start the colorwork tonight - eek!) and this will be so helpful!

I actually knit using the English style, but I think I understand the concept of what you are doing in the video ... we'll see if I'm able to translate what you are doing over to the English knitting style! Although I have been wanting to try learning to knit Continental, maybe this will provide me with the opportunity ....
