Purl Alpaca Designs – back on the small screen
We are very happy that we are building a strong relationship with Create and Craft TV and we are very lucky to be having a regular monthly show now. It is proving a great way to meet new customers and we are loving all the correspondence and feedback we are getting! Thank you to everyone who has been watching and thank you for all your lovely comments. We are back again on Create and Craft tomorrow, this time we will be presenting Cleo, our skirt/poncho/dress multi garment, as well as Adie and Charlie, the pom pom hat and scarf set. We came to think of these photos of Laura from Purl About Town modelling Cleo, and she has allowed us to use them on the show tomorrow!
During the show we will show you how to do short row shaping, one of Kari-Helene’s favourite techniques, and a vital technique in many of Purl Alpaca’s designs. Adie is a perfect kit for a beginner to learn this technique as it keeps focus solely on the short row shaping. Cleo will then be the next step, introducing cabling as well as multiple short row shapings. A good challenge!
We will also be demonstrating how to join the yarn using the felting/splicing method. This is a great technique to use when knitting with alpaca or wool as you create seamless joins and avoid sewing in ends. It is especially a handy technique to use when knitting something like Charlie as you have no seams or inside to hide your joins and ends. Watch us on Thursday 25th of August at 5pm online on www.createandcraft.tv or on the following channels Sky 671, Freeview 36 or Freesat 813
