Double Knitting Potholder...

We have a new teacher in the shop... She moved a couple of months ago to town and have been going to the shop on Tuesdays. She's about my age and knows a lot of knitting, lots of techniques and technical details like the ones I enjoy to discover.

Last week I took a Double-knit class from her. Double-knit makes for a thicker fabric, you work with both colors at the same time and you can make a drawing or a patterned chart and have the image on both sides on opposite colors.

We made a Potholder...
You see, one side is the reverse of the other.
It was a little hard to get the hang of it in the beginning but after a while, and when you start seeing the drawing appear was easier and faster and I really liked it.
Since seeing Lily Chin's double color dress and now with this class I find myself a lot more interested in double color and it's variations!!! I'll start experimenting...

Also last week, MG played with his shadow in the morning... we have a sliding door in the living room and every morning the sun floods the space...
...and a very pretty sunrise last Thursday...
See you soon!!


  1. Good job on the potholder.. I remember doing a fair isle pattern with several colors and carried them in back.. I made a really colorful bag and for the life of me can't find it. It's probably in the attic in a box.. somewhere.
