knitting with ribbon
I finally bought some ribbon (Calypso from yarn girls) and was wondering if there are any special techniques when knitting with this stuff. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Ellie

I've only knit a swatch with ribbon, and I just knit in my regular way. Looked good.

i saw something on this...are you using another yarn with it? I think I saw that the knitter only did the knit stitch with the ribbon so that it faced the front...It was on Knitty Gritty last week on the diy channel
www.diynetwork.com They put patterns and pictures up there if you've never looked...
