I will try my best. When watching the videos I did realize how fast I was.
I may make another sample with both stitches in slow-mo. I mean: really in slow-mo. My husband has a camera that can slow stuff down incredibly much and still be good quality. Maybe that is easier than me doing anything slow (you should hear me talk... I am fast in any language I learn).

I will tell when I did the next video to that!

Hey, Hyper! :o)

I would love to know when you post the slower video. I'm working with the one you have up now (it's really cool!) but of course it's more difficult at that speed!

I haven't worked out the design yet for my godmother's sweater but I'm going to have to get started pretty soon. This is one project I don't want to rush at the last minute. The plan is to have it knit, blocked, wrapped up pretty and mailed by the beginning of December (or sooner).

I'm going to have to do a bit more practice to really nail down the technique and it's only the top third of the cardigan that will have the Fair Isle, but still I'm hoping for the luxury of some extra time to work on it!

I LOVE THE WRIST WARMERS you showed in the video. They are awesome! That pattern is just gorgeous! Once I'm finished the sweater I may just tackle it, thanks to your great instructions!

Happy knitting,

Ruthie

Hyperactive recently made videos for both the knit and purl versions of this technique ... click here to see her video on working the purl row using this weaving technique.
I can't thank you enough for this link. I want to do a Fair Isle sweater and I've put the project off for way too long, simply because I'm "knitting with colors" dumb.

Hi!

Don't forget this one. Use it with hyper's videos so you can work both flat and in the round!

Hi!
I will take on the slower videos this weekend and will post here, when I uploaded.
My technique works for flat or in the round as well, just as a side note. When doing the work in the round, you can anyways just use the knit stitch and be much faster than doing the purl stitches (that are more work).
But I do agree 100%: the Philosopher's wool instructions is just AWESOME!

I will get back to you with the slower video!
