Starter craft: colourwork knitting
So you're a knitter and you've done about as many scarves, sock and gloves as you can handle. You've been watching too many gritty Scandinavian police dramas and you have your heart set on a magnificent colourwork pattern. But you have the fear. There are so many strands of yarn, so many different colours. You'll never make it to the end of a whole jumper.
Fear not! TECHknitting to the rescue. TECHknitting is the place to go to find out just what makes knitting tick. It's an incredibly useful resource, run by the mysterious TECHknitter, for those who want to move on from plain old garter stitch and get stuck into some splendid stitching.
This might all sound very confusing but trust me when I say that the tutorials are very easy to follow. They are also illustrated with clear pictures so you won't get lost on the way to your perfect colourwork.

Now you have no excuse not to bust out the colourwork knitting. Sorry about that.
