  1. Staci, the pattern that i wanna start calls for “fingering weight” yarn. I went to my local craft store (hobby lobby) and they list the yarns by numbers….like 1 was a very fine, 2 was a medium and so fort. can you tell me what number fingering weight fall under??

  2. Working with two colors how do you go from a knit stitch to a purl stitch without leaving a big loose gap.
    I cross the yarns in the back but it does’nt help.
    Hope you can give me some ideas.
    Please and thank you

  3. Peggy – I’ve never knit a fair isle pattern that also required switching between knitting purling in a row, so I don’t have any specific advice. All I can say, generally, is watch your tension on each stitch, and make sure it’s snug before you go on to the next stitch.

  4. Whenever I’m watching your videos, some how I’m always focused on the type of yarn your using. My main question is, what type of yarn do you use?

  5. Hi Staci,
    I’m working on a 2-color project involving white and black yarn. I have to carry the black yarn behind the white in some areas and find that the black sometimes shows from the front. I’ve read about color dominance in stranding and seen a few different ways knitters carry the floats in back of fair isle. Can you do a tutorial on showing the best way to strand floats so the back looks neat and the principles of color dominance apply, and how to avoid the darker color showing thorough the lighter color when stranding?
    Thanks very much!
