Picking and throwing!

Just had a fab weekend in Cornwall with my mum. The great thing with a 4 hour journey is plenty of knitting time and then more time to sit around knitting and cosying in front of the fire.

I just wanted to share with you a colour work technique that my mum was using: Working a two colour pattern she was throwing (knitting english style) with one colour and picking (knitting european style) with the other. This results in much quicker colour work and less tangles.

Here is what it looks like:
Not a great picture to be fair, but you get the idea!
