Sometimes I wonder if the blogosphere has some great psychic connection thingie going on. Because whenever I'm getting ready to do some kind of knitting project, all of a sudden, there's a kajillion other people doing the same thing, and articles out the woz on the subject. (Okay, it's far more likely that what I'm doing is in the front of my mind, and therefore I NOTICE the articles more often, but don't ruin it for me. We're psychic. It's more fun that way.)
Yesterday the knew Knitty came out, and lo and behold, just in time for the Steek-Along, is an article on stranded color knitting, and how to do it. With photos. (If anyone cares, I do stranded color by running the dark color through my index and middle fingers, and the light color through my middle and ring fingers, of my left hand. I never knew it was a legitimate technique until recently - I made it up myself in the knitting vacuum of the 1980's.)
THEN, when I was thinking I needed to drop that link to youse guys, who else is steeking, but the Knitting Curmudgeon herself. And she took photos. And did a crocheted steek, no less. Just like we're gonna do.
So if you're still not sure about your techniques, there are two more places to go look and have a read. And remember, I'll be doing tutorials as we go, also.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go do something about the 25 pound bag of flour I bought earlier today. And I just took some medication, so I may well be back later, swearing over the mathematician who figured out how to divide by zero. (Because imaginary numbers aren't useless enough. Terby, don't argue with me, they're useless. They ARE. ARE TOO. I don't care about the surface area of a sphere, and I don't need a freaking negative square root, and neither does anyone else. DO NOT.)
