Episode 96 I’m American And My Tension Sucks

Hello and welcome to the Hudson Valley Knits Podcast! I am Amy and I am podcasting today from my home in the Hudson Valley in NY state. I have a couple of finished projects to show you and a little progress on some WIPs.

Mostly what I talk about during this podcast is stranded colorwork and some tips related to that. Please know that the title of the podcast is all in fun. I know there has been a lot of talk in the knitting podcast world about stranded knitting, tension and color dominance. I share some of my own thoughts as well as some tips about stranded knitting on magic loop and color dominance.

I try to demonstrate my advise but don’t have the best set up. Also this is not a complete topic about these subjects. It it meant to add to the amazing video expertly done by Dianna Walla on her YouTube channel Paper Tiger.

I also refer to the Arne & Carlos YouTube video Why There Is No Dominant Color in Norwegian Knitting

I highly recommend the book Knitting With Two Colors by Meg Swansen and Amy Detjen if you want to learn or improve your stranded knitting. I swear by this book and think it is all you will need to improve your stranded knitting and customize your colorwork knitting.
