Knit Slide color Knitting ~ Wonderful Site!

I found this wonderful web site showing you how to change colors when knitting and NOT have all those ends to weave in.  Please check it out.  It's taken from a book called "Color Knitting the Easy Way" by Melissa Leapman.

Also check out this web site for more information about her book.

Design Sponge Meet Brett Barra

Here's an exerpt from this wonderful website about their campaign. Check out the tutorials on knitting and crocheting.

Brett says:
"I’m excited about the Land’s End FeelGood Campaign for several reasons. First, I love the idea of hard-working volunteer knitters turning 5,000 pounds of yarn into blankets for those in need. Second, I’m dying to learn how to crochet and I think a video tutorial might be my golden ticket. And last, I love looking at my computer screen and seeing the friendly face of Brett Bara — resident sewing queen and author of the D*S column Sewing 101 — smiling back at me."

Brett has made three great videos for the campaign, including a couple tutorials on knitting and crochet. They are filmed at the amazing Purl Soho in NYC. I’ve included one below to whet your appetite; you can view all of them here. You can also catch Brett on the CBS Early Show today between 7am and 9am. I can’t wait to score some crochet hooks and get to it! — Kate
