The twined knitting class on Friday was so much fun. I can't say how much I enjoyed it. Every minute was jam packed with information. We learned a pretty decorative cast on and how to make a half-hitch with your yarn at the ball for ease of un-twisting. We learned some of the basic decorative stitches and how to do a very interesting afterthought style heel. I neglected to get photos of pulling out the yarn to free the stitches so I really need to finish this guy and get sock #2 at least that far so I can get photos while I remember how it's done. Beth provides fantastic class notes but I find pictures of my actual project are necessary for some of the more intricate techniques. This type of knitting is usually done with z-twist yarn which is not very available so we were using S-twist yarn. One of the class members discovered that twining in the opposite direction made the knitted fabric much more even and the yarn got much less twisty as she knitted. I really want to try that on sock #2 as well.
