Slip some color into your knits (+ yarn giveaway)

Martingale's Knit and Crochet Friday


From Slip-Stitch Knits

Remember the BIG box of crayons you owned as a kid? The one with nearly 100 colors to choose from?

Slip-Stitch KnitsBrowsing the local yarn shop can feel just like pawing through those colorful crayons. So many fabulous, fantastic, phenomenal hues!

If you’ve never tried knitting with multiple colors, you’re in for a thrill.

Best-selling author Sheryl Thies wants you to give color a spin with her new book, Slip-Stitch Knits. Knitting with two colors or more doesn’t have to be complicated.

Cowls from Slip-Stitch Knits

Sheryl’s instructions are easy to follow so even beginners can make these projects. If you can knit and purl, you already know how to slip a stitch! You’re never working with more than one yarn per row, so slipping in those colors and watching colorful patterns appear before your eyes couldn’t be easier.

Scarves from Slip-Stitch Knits

Why not enjoy the full spectrum of yarn colors available? Sheryl’s slip-stitch knitting patterns are great for stash busting too. If you pick up two skeins from separate dye lots, the subtle color variation can be elegantly showcased with a slip-stitch pattern.

  • I do not like working in the ends, but like multicolor, so I work with variegated yarns. I especially like the ones with long color changes!

    —Deborah K. on June 26, 2015
  • I am a beginner and have mostly knit with one color. I did make a shawl that was two colors where I cut the one color and tied the second color to the end of the first color and did the same when I had to switch back to the first color.

    —Susan on June 26, 2015
  • I am most definitely a "one color’ knitter. Since my entire collection of knitted items are either stockinette or garter, one could say that I am a novice knitter with a fear of branching out.

    —debra lee on June 26, 2015
  • I do love to knit with colors. But the patterns are always simple. I don’t like to carry the 2nd color too far because I don’t like to deal with wrapping. The patterns in this book look gorgeous. I especially like the scarves.

    —ann deery on June 26, 2015
  • I love to knit, primarily in one color, but have been successful in using two colors at a time – it just takes me a little longer :-). Thank you for the chance to win some delightful looking yarn!

    —Barbara Niekerk on June 26, 2015
  • I usually knit with variegated yarn, I like the look of it. Have made a 2 color sweater, several of them and a lot of scarves using different yarns. It really depends on the pattern and how I want to change it up

    —connie b on June 26, 2015
  • I do a lot of single color knitting and also fair isle — but I’ve wanted to try slip stitch knitting and this book looks perfect!

    —lisa on June 26, 2015
  • Primarily one color, although I do intarsia, fair isle, and mosaic knitting as well. I love slipped stitches and these patterns are beautiful. Hope I win.

    —Virginia S on June 26, 2015
  • Enjoy knitting and crochet using many colors. Especially like slip stitch knitting as it showcases the color I like plus gives a nice background, especially when changing colors in yoke patterns

    —Janet Shea on June 26, 2015
  • I have done a bit of two-color knitting, but don’t have a lot of confidence when I do. Would like to try more and these patterns look like a good way to improve!

    —Linny Shearer on June 26, 2015
  • Normally I knit in one color, especially for men for a dressier fashionable look.

    However, the grandchildren like bright Crayola colors. They are fun to knit. And a joy to watch the children’s faces light up when they don their new sweater, or hat, from Grandma.

    One grandson liked wearing Grandma’s "made ’em", he would wear it to bed. Sometimes it was removed while he was sleeping to be laundered.

    —D Baldwin on June 26, 2015
  • I normally knit with just one color. The few times I’ve knit with more than one, I usually do ombre or very small rows of color included in my knitting.

    —crlebrn on June 26, 2015
  • I predominantly knit with one color, although I’m working on an afghan using two colors throughout at this time.

    —Susan Simonson on June 26, 2015
  • My experience with various colors comes mostly from self striping yarn. This new technique would be fun to try.

    Kathy on June 26, 2015
  • Multiple colors

    —Debbie Chenoweth on June 26, 2015
  • I have not experimented with adding colors to my knitting,, as I am a beginner. but would love to start doing so. I would love the yarn too. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Debra

    —Debra Ingle on June 26, 2015
  • LOVE THE ONE SKEIN KNITTING,BECAUSE I AM A BEGINNER,NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET!!!!

    ANGELA PRINGLE on June 26, 2015
  • I typically knit with one color at a time, sometimes changing color to work stripes. After seeing the Slip-stitch Knits, I am itching to try some color work! I especially like the scarf in photo 8 except I would change the pink to something like turquoise.

    —Jamie Mullenix on June 26, 2015
  • What a lovely giveaway, thank you! Yes, I have knit afghans, scarves and shawls with multiple colors. I find projects with different colors to be much more interesting to create. They rarely bore me. 🙂

    —Bec on June 26, 2015
  • I have tried knitting with multiple colors. I have knitted some hats for my sons. I do like to knit with sock yarn that has many colors in the skein. It is fun to watch the colors change. The "Token Creek" scarf looks very interesting.

    —Cindy Schultz on June 26, 2015
  • I wish that I had kept the Scandinavian mitts which my Swedish grandmother knitted us when we were small girls. I have tried Fair Isle knitting and really liked the snowflake pattern. I can’t watch TV and do it, though!

    Gail G on June 26, 2015
  • I primarily knit with one color sometimes with the yarn is variegated, not much with multiple threads This would be wonderful new experience for me to try. Thanks for this opportunity.

    —Agnes on June 26, 2015
  • I’m a beginner, so only using one color right now.

    —Mi Webber on June 26, 2015
  • I’ve done mostly solid colored scarves, but I love multicolored knitting projects of all kinds.

    —Linda H. on June 26, 2015
  • I have done 2 color knitting and crochet. But not enough to feel really comfortable. It is great fun to see the pattern show up as each row progresses. I’d love the opportunity to play with more color in my projects!

    —stephanie on June 26, 2015
  • I haven’t yet tried knitting with more than one color – kinda ‘fraidy cat’ about it – but some of these designs are definitely tempting.

    —Tawney on June 26, 2015
  • I am a very new knitter, so I’ve stuck with simplicity (one color) – my grandmother taught me to crochet 40 years ago, and although I’m trying to learn to knit, the second needle still confuses me after crocheting for so long.

    —Karen Cohn on June 26, 2015
  • It’s been awhile but I always like doing difficult projects. Maybe this is the kickstart I need!

    —Mary Smith on June 26, 2015
  • I am a color-full person – meaning that I love all kinds of extreme color combinations. Love what Sheryl Thies has done in her book!

    —Carmen Rowan on June 26, 2015
  • I would love to try knitting with multiple coloured yarns, as of yet I haven’t taken the plunge. Slip Stitch Knits looks like a must have publication. Thanks for a chance.

    —Diane H on June 26, 2015
  • HI,yes I usually do use just one color but these examples are so pretty! Thanks for sharing!

    —LINDA on June 26, 2015
  • I generally knit with only one colour, but I have done colourwork and quite enjoy it and the results.

    This looks like another great book from Sheryl and I really hope I win! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —susan on June 26, 2015
  • I have not knitted with more than one color and need this giveaway to begin this skill.

    —Nancy Johnson on June 26, 2015
  • I hadn’t really given it a lot of thought but I guess I am mainly a one-colour knitter. Lots of fair isle etc when my daughters were young, but now if I do use more than 1 colour, it’s stripes. Either with a variegated or self-striping yarn, or 2 close-together colours for their favourite hats and mitts. Don’t think I ever did slip-stitch like in this book.

    —HelenW on June 26, 2015
  • Traditionally I’ve stayed with one color. I’m a little afraid to get into multiple colors but I’m willing to try!

    —Carol on June 26, 2015
  • I am just learning to knit so not sure how to answer the question. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Renea on June 26, 2015
  • Usually one color, since I knit lace most of the time. But it’s time to change it up a bit.

    —Kim Q on June 26, 2015
  • I usually knit with variegated colored yarns but I am going to start a couple of projects with multiple colors.

    —Julie Janitscheck on June 26, 2015
  • I have worked with a lot of different types and colors of yarn and would be thrilled to win this yarn and publication.

    Gladys Bacon-Rust on June 26, 2015
  • Only with ONE color or varigated yarn so I never have to switch!

    —Vera on June 26, 2015
  • I can’t hide my stitches very well with multiple colors. Would love to though.

    —Janie on June 26, 2015
  • I’ve primarily knit in one color and am now confident enough to try multiple colors in simple stripes. I’d love to try some of these scarves next. Thank you for this opportunity! 🙂

    —l. kawakami on June 26, 2015
  • Such pretty projects. I have done limited slip stitch work but none were as pretty as these patterns. Thanks for the inspiration and for offering a giveaway.

    —Audrey on June 26, 2015
  • I am just starting to learn the different techniques that add more than one color to project. Stripes are fairly easy to do, but changing colors mid-row without holes and floats with wonky tension issues…

    —Barbara Colvin on June 26, 2015
  • I’ve done lots of colorwork: Intarsia, Fair Isle, Stripes, Festival Knitting – which is Intarsia in the round, and Mosaic/Slip Stitch methods. I’ve wound up with over 50 ends to weave in more than a once! I’ve tried the trick of weaving in as I go, then had to unweave when I needed to frog a section. Thanks to both Martingale and Plymouth for the generous giveaway.

    —KittenWithAWhiplash on June 26, 2015
  • I have wanted to branch out to use gradient yarns in patterns, but so far due to cost mainly I have stuck with the solid colors. I am a beginner and have seen so many pretty patterns with so many beautiful colors. Learning how to use two colors etc. or even tackling fair isle knitting is something I would love to be able to do one day. Happy Knitting!

    —Anne on June 26, 2015
  • I love knitting and crocheting in colors…it makes even the most simple patterns stand out…Thank you so much for the chance to win!!!

    Flo on June 26, 2015
  • I usually knit using only one color but this article just might change my mind

    —Linda on June 26, 2015
  • I like to use lots of color. Either 1 skein that’s variegated or multiple skeins of different colors

    —Joanne Roberts on June 26, 2015
  • I have knitted with different color yarns but am not able to make a smooth transition with them as of yet. I keep trying though.

    —Rachel on June 26, 2015
  • I knit in one color, or with variegated yarn. Learning to knit in 2 colors is on my to learn list!

    Denise L. on June 26, 2015
  • I knit primarily with one color, although I have tried a few projects with 2 colors. I am a newby at this and still trying to perfect the technique.

    —joyce on June 26, 2015
  • I love to knit with varigated yarns! The patterns are so interesting. That said, I also knit with solids, mixing colors as it suits what I’m doing. I would love to try a new yarn. how exciting!

    —Nancy Eriksen on June 26, 2015
  • That book looks very interesting. I just this year started experimenting with 2 color slip stitch knitting. I found it fun. Would love to have this book.

    —Judy Morris on June 26, 2015
  • I have made many sweaters with multiple colours around the yoke quite a few years ago and would very much like to knit with multiple colours again. Thank you the offer to enter for this giveaway.

    —Nancy E on June 26, 2015
  • I usually work with multiple colors at a time, or variegated yarn.

    —Crystal Arcand on June 26, 2015
  • I love to work on a two color project. It’s challenging for me and love the look of the finished projects!

    —Bonney on June 26, 2015
  • I tend to knit with basically one color and add just few rows of color

    —Monica Schwartz on June 26, 2015
  • I normally only knit with one colour but I did make a jumper with a Border Collie’s head (an intarsia pattern I adapted from a photograph) on the front many years ago for my first visit to Cruft’s Dog Show. It turned out quite well but I’ve never really tried anything like it again and the jumper has long since been consigned to the rubbish bin 🙁
    The patterns in this blog look really nice – might be time to look at multi-coloured knitting again!

    —Suzanne on June 26, 2015
  • Generally knit with verigated yarns for colors….would love to learn to master multiple colored yarns

    —Karen Keeler on June 26, 2015
  • I must be brave and try this!

    —Rhoda on June 26, 2015
  • I usually knit with one color because I dislike weaving in all those ends.

    —Cindy S on June 26, 2015
  • I love working with mosaic stitches!! I did a study group and felt like I’d found my calling!! Slip stitching is amazing and fun but finding patterns using this technique are very hard to find. You can find books on how to do the stitches but very little to apply them to. I did several scarves using slip stitching a few yrs. ago. I would love to win this contest for sure!!!

    —Diana Salmon on June 26, 2015
  • I have knit in more than one color but mostly only things with stripes. Love these patterns and would like to try them.

    —Linda F. on June 26, 2015
  • I am just learning and have only used one color. But I hope to try harder things soon.

    Debby on June 26, 2015

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on June 26, 2015

    —chris on June 26, 2015
  • Right now I knit mostly with one color yarn, but have in the knitted many things in 2 or more colors.

    —Pat Neumann on June 26, 2015

  • I mostly crochet. However, my son has knit scarves for gifts using two colors and they looked lovely.

    —Deborah on June 26, 2015
  • It varies. This looks interesting!

    —Dorcus Bezalel on June 26, 2015
  • I’ve dabbled with multi colored yarn projects, but end up using a solid and a varigated. It really has to be a special pattern for a special reason because i’m alwats concerned about fussing about with lots of yarns at once.

    —ckachel on June 26, 2015
  • I’d love to learn how to knit, and start making shawls and scarves.

    Lynn Whinery on June 26, 2015

    Hope I’ll be a winner

  • The fastest sweater I ever knitted was mauve, pink, raspberry, and everything in between. I got the yarn on sale–one or two skeins of many colors–and started with a floral vest pattern, for which I designed a different back and sleeves. It went so fast because I couldn’t wait to see what the next part looked like.

    betty nelson on June 26, 2015
  • I have known how to knit and purl for 68 years since my expert Grandma taught me. She also taught me to cast on, as have several others over the years, but that learning never sticks and I have to learn it anew with each project. I remember making a shawl for my Grandma in red and grey but since then I have only used one color. I would love to win and make something from this book. Thanks

    —Ruth on June 26, 2015
  • In retirement I am rediscovering the art of knitting…Knitted as a child…through high school and some college..very "traditional" and pretty much self taught…I’d love to learn the latest techniques and experiment with colors…I hope I’m a lucky winner…

    —Alberta on June 26, 2015
  • I nearly always manage to slip some colors into whatever I’m knitting. Textures and cables are fun, but color makes the project even more interesting–the more the merrier!

    —Joanne on June 26, 2015
  • I would love to work with more than one color but I have 3 littles that are into everything and I’m concerned that they would be too helpful!

    —Rebecca B on June 26, 2015
  • I mostly use one color or one variegated yarn.

    —Cegnfred on June 26, 2015
  • Most of the time just one color, but on occasion I have used more than one color.

    —Noreen on June 26, 2015
  • I have only knitted with the one wool but like the sound of tackling the challenge of adding more colours. Learning new techniques would be wonderful

    —Beryl Rutherford on June 27, 2015
  • This would the perfect book to win in a giveaway. I am just learning to knit properly, so I am learning both single and double colors. Thank you for sharing the giveaway!

    —Diane on June 27, 2015

    —Karen L. on June 27, 2015
  • I have made several sweaters with 2 colors but usually use one color or a variegated yarn

    —connie b on June 27, 2015
  • I have knit striped projects by dropping one color at the end of the row and picking up another, and I have knit with two different color skeins of yarn at the same time to make a marl effect, but I’ve never used two colors at different times in the same row.

    Barbara Johnson on June 27, 2015
  • Would love to win this giveaway! Thanks, Phyllis

    phyllis oller on June 27, 2015
  • I used to use many more colours at once, in fair-isle mainly, but usually now I prefer to keep things more simple, and rarely use more than 2 or 3 colours on one project. I like self-striping yarns and others with built-in colour changes quite a lot! They are fun and somewhat unpredictable.

    —Cat on June 27, 2015
  • colours are great, and I like to try new ways of making things

    —Sharon on June 27, 2015
  • I would LOVE to learn how to use more than one color! LOL I’ve drooled over two-color projects, but shied away cos I thought I just couldn’t handle it. Thanks for the chance to win this book!

    Snoodles on June 27, 2015
  • So far I have only used one color when I have knitted. I have been a bit scared to try more colors, since I am just a beginner.

    —Jamie on June 27, 2015
  • I am all over the place, one color, multi colors, stranded knitting, whatever mood I am in at the time. But I really would like to work slipped stitch cowls such that the edges do not roll where the inside become dominant. I am always open to new things to learn and experiment with….

    —Kathy on June 27, 2015
  • Haven’t played with multiple colors unless the yarn was multi-colored! Just getting brave enough to try socks!

    —Bev Gunn on June 27, 2015
  • I love working with more than one color. Though sometimes I think I am holding my breath the whole time i’m working on that project.

  • I often mix colors together & love variegated yarns.

    —Peggy Hallstrom on June 27, 2015
  • I usually knit with one color as I am not as creative as I would like to be. I have to see someone’s color scheme before I will try it. Thank you for sharing your patterns.

    —Karen on June 27, 2015
  • I am not a very accomplished knitter so I stick to one color but would love to learn more.

    —Libby on June 27, 2015
  • lately I’ve been using yarns that are multi colored and leave a neat stripe type pattern, this is an amazing give away – thank you for this chance

    —Jennifer Essad on June 27, 2015
  • I usually just use one color – although I have worked with two before.

    —Renee G on June 27, 2015
  • I usually knit with variegated yarn and add a plain color to mellow it out. Then a simple stripe suffuces to add texture.

    —Linda Towers on June 28, 2015
  • It depends on the need and mood of the moment…probably more one color than not.

    —Janie on June 28, 2015
  • Since I am new to knitting, I basically knit with one color. Looking at the illustrations of the different patterns, I am tempted to try adding color. Maybe this book is the push I need. Thank you for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on June 28, 2015
  • Except for some simple stripes, I usually work a single color. But these patterns are very inviting! Thanks for the opportunity….

    —Pearl on June 28, 2015

  • Thank you for this offer! I love colorful yarn and all of the possibilities it offers to create beautiful works of art. I am new to knitting and would like learn how to incorporate more than one color in projects.

    —Kimberly on June 29, 2015
  • I love slip stitch work and have used it for potholders and dishcloths. I am anxious to see the wonderful patterns you previewed. I love the shawls that you have shown and would love to get started on a larger slip stitch project.

    I like multi-color projects but prefer yarns with flecks are quick color changes as opposed to long color runs.

  • I love knitting with multiple colours especially when self-striping or variegated yarns are involved. You can create some really fabulous effects!

  • I love to knit with multiple colors, it adds variety to my knitting and I love to see all the colors together!

  • I only knit one color at a time but sooner or later I will try intarsia or fair isle, even if I am a little bit intimidated.

  • when I was much younger I made a sweater for my younger daughter that was two colors, front and back one color, sleeves a different one, with two little Scottie puppies knit in the center the color of the sleeves…(she loved it and wore it all the time)…but then I got busy and didn’t knit for about 20 years…I have only made two things so far: one was a multi colored yarn knit into a baby blanket (took me 18 months, I am soooo slow), the other is still in process, after two years…it’s a shawl with a lacy pattern I’m using three colors but it’s stripes…I would dearly love to win this and learn how to do this type of knitting…prob’ly still take me forever to make anything…did I mention that I also have more than a dozen crochet projects going, as well? that might have something to do with why my knitting takes so long…just sayin’
