I love this video so much—a visit with two clever knitwear designers, Felicity Ford and Jen Arnall-Culliford. Grab a sock to finish and settle in for a half hour conversation with these wonderful women.
They’re exploring colorwork—playing with skeins and seeing what works.
Felicity, or Felix as she’s often called, creates joyful stranded colorwork designs. Her Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook is a classic guide, and in this video we get an introduction to her method of working with a lot of color.
I can’t recall the last time I saw colorwork swatches like the ones Felix waves around in this video. They combine light and dark, hue and value. They look impossible. But Felix’s message? They’re not!
This new Boost Your Knitting video tutorial is great fun no matter where you are on your journey of playing with color.

Felicity Ford’s brand-new design for Boost Your Knitting, Skystone Armwarmers, makes a perfect canvas for you to experiment with your own colors, or using the yarns that are available in the Summer Boost Your Knitting yarn kit, available here.
Fascinating to see what happens when you switch up the color choices.
