Maybe I clicked on the wrong thing before...but earlier I was brought to a page wanting me to spend $30 for the online tutuorial and whatnot. Found the purse thing though. Looks cute, makes me want to give it a whirl!

The purse was very easy and the free video that goes with it for two-handed fair isle goes step by step and teaches you how to catch the floats which is important for stranding.

Two handed isn't the only way though, I just find it the easiest.

You should see the video right away when you click the original links we posted. It doesn't seem to work on my iPad, but was fine on my computer last time I checked.

I was using my kindle fire the first time...wonder if that's why the video didn't seem to be there. Just now checked using computer and it popped up right away. Thanks to all for the help!

Yeah, I bet that's why. Doesn't work on my iPad or iPhone either.

Once you do a simple project you will see how easy it is.

I knit fair isle by doing 1 color at a time. I sometimes get twists in the colors but they are usually easy to fix. in other words I do 1 handed fair isle. That is what is easiest for me.

Well, I'm getting there
But have come across a wee bit of an issue. How does one keep multiple colors from tangling together when the WIP is in storage for the night? When working with two colors it wasn't terribly difficult. But since I've chosen to praštice one of these samplers with four colors, it's been quite a challenge to untangle everything before even starting to knit again.

What's your secret to keeping the colors organised while in storage? Right now I have it all in a tote with a lid to keep Kitty from making this sampler his latest playtoy!

Dealing with the strands is a problem. Some people solve it by working with small butterflies of yarn and others by keeping long strands which can be pulled through. I usually untangle the strands periodically and right before I finish for the day. Placing the knitting in a box or on the couch on top of the yarn balls usually keeps it fairly tidy for the next day. No curious kitties to deal with here, however.
