Inside out

I have learned a trick to help control tension when knitting fair isle in the round: knit inside out. Having the floats stretched along the outside helps solves the problem of too-tight stitches.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.

    The thought of how you do that makes my brain hurt. Next time I see you, I’d like a demonstration. 🙂

    Erica – it’s not so hard, I used to do it with socks on accident. 🙂 Funny thing is, now it’s hard to keep the stocking inside out; I keep automatically trying to flip it.

    I’m curious too – so are you still knitting, or are you purling because it’s inside out?
