- Don't strand yarn across the back of more than 5 stitches;
- Don't be tempted to use more than two colours in the same row.
Now, EZ would be the first to tell you to adopt a take-it-or-leave-it attitude to her advice, but it really does make sense once you decide to set her wisdom aside.
I'm happy with the work on the yoke I've achieved so far, about one third of the design, but it definitely isn't the ideal project for one's first attempt at stranded yarn knitting. I really like the design of this pullover, so it's worth doing, but trying to manipulate three yarns with fingers that haven't quite worked out how to cope with two is proving to be a real challenge. Photos will follow of the finished article, assuming that I don't stuff it up.
By the way, I'm entranced with some of the designs for men's garments on the Drops Design website. This won't be the only one of theirs that I do.
On another subject, many thanks to those who replied to my earlier post that it looked like I was developing RSI. The wait for some yarn to arrive by mail order gave sufficient time to recover and no problems have reoccurred since.
