"ANGEL" My version from the book "Knitting Mochimochi" by Anna Hrachovec, a great book about a knitted form of amigurumi knitting.

Mosaic Knitting..."MOSAIC 1" pot holder, viewed from both front & "wrong side"

"MOSAIC 1" pot holder 18cmX18cm Pattern from the book "Mosaic Knitting" by Barbara G Walker
This is a good example of 2 color slip stitch knitting. I knitted the whole "thing" in garter stitch making the completed pot holder lay flat, but the 2 colors don't seem to "pop" as they would in stockinette.

Stash-busting Hats

At the last knitting guild meeting, one of the ladies brought a couple of hats she knit out of left-over yarns. She even made up a bunch of "kits" for us! She just put together some odd-ball yarns that were left over and there was not much left to make anything out of them. She used 3-4 yarns together, 10 mm needles, so it is a fast knit.

Tight and tidy cable edges

Hi guys, I was just on YouTube watching an instructional video series by Lucy Neatby about cabling. In part two of the series she shows how to neaten the left hand edge of a cable. This side of the cable is looser due to the way the yarn travels from knit to purl. She shows how you can remedy this by reverse-wrapping the first purl stitch after a series of knit stitches.
