  1. Hi! This is regarding the question about strained wrists. I knit beaded lace shawls ferociously. Yes, they do get heavy at the end. I always end up knitting on the table. I rest my lace and my wrists on the table while knitting. Just make sure that the chair is comfortable and the height of the table is just right. I need to do that with the beads anyway. Hope this helps. Love your podcast!

  2. Hi Staci and Casey. I learned to knit fair isle not too long ago and was hooked right away, so I was very excited to learn in your podcast about what happens when holding which color in which hand. Then today I happened to watch a knitting show on a local PBS station that I have my DVR set to record called Knitting Daily…(from 2014…..season 13, episode 6 – Fair Isle Style) and they talked about this also!…and showed a sample of what it looks like! What a coincidence that they would air this episode around the same time you talk about it in your podcast! Thank you for all you do.
