Hello everyone
I have just found this site through a UK one - and decided to join! It looks really interesting - I have been knitting for years - just for myself and family - but suffer from 'unfinished project' syndrome - which means lots of yarn/patterns abandoned in corners! x I am presently knitting a jacket for myself and have almost completed the back - looking forward to some interesting reading on here! :happydancing:

My name is Kathryn and I've been knitting since college...hhhmmmm,
many more years ago than I care to admit! I am the mother of 4 grown children and recently a new grammy of 3 adopted grandchildren, whom I adore! Two beautiful little boys...one 6 yrs old from Taiwan and one 8 yrs old from Russia...and finally a gorgeous little girl from Colombia, South America who turned 8 in March! In the "old days," I could follow any pattern, and knit almost anything. But I got into other crafts for many years and now I don't seem able to remember many of the techniques I used to master...including knitting in the round and cable stitching. I'm addicted to yarn, and recently, when our only local knit shop closed its doors, my husband bought me one of their display shelving units. So I have almost ceiling to floor shelves in one of my guest rooms, and I love to go in and just sit and look at all the beautiful, colorful skeins of yarn. May sound a little nutty, but it's almost like a place of refuge when life becomes too hectic.
;-) I've been investigating natural fibers, and love knitting boas in recycled sari silk from Nepal. If anyone has experience with recycled silk, I'd love to know what items you've made, and what size needles you've used?? I'm also experimenting with bamboo yarns, and have made many little purses, which I line in colorful silk fabric. Does anyone have a source for decorative buttons?? In ending this post, I hope to exchange ideas for different projects. I really don't have any friends here who knit with the same verocity I do. Although I have been trying to form a weekly knitting circle here on the island, so far I haven't had any response. BTW: If you haven't read "The Knitting Circle," I recommend it highly!!
This is the very first time I've been to this site, which my husband found for me. I am looking forward to seeing the videos everyone is talking about.

Lori, you may want to post your question with the exact wording of the pattern in the "How To" forum.

Welcome!

Stranding is the more correct word for Fair Isle technique, because you can knit other patterns and not particularly Fair Isle with this. It's basically using 2 or more colours and making patterns with them (knit a few stitches with colour #1, while stranding the other colours behind your work and then changing colours). Amy has great videos for that technique.

Thank you for your response. I can see that I have a lot of things to learn. :-)

Hi Diane. Welcome to the Forum. I'm going to copy your post to the Pattern forum. I'm sure someone will follow up with your question there. I'll title it 'Help with Cable Pattern".

Welcome to the Forum Laurie. I copied your question to the How to questions forum under the title "I cord question." Have a look there for some answers.
