Knit Weave and Embroidery Knitting
Hi there. Happy New Years! I'm kicking off the New Year with a knitting technique share. I had heard of knit-weave (the three images below) but not of embroidery knitting. Embroidery knitting is defined as contrast thread woven into the knitted yardage vertically rather than horizontally as in knit-weave. See how a card is used to hold the contrast yarn? See further below for some great pattern designs and the pages that show how to wrap and manipulate the vertical card weaving. I can see using this for accessories and jewellery as well along edges of garments. This was found in an Empisal pattern book from the 1950's.
I've also got some new work in my store here. You can enter 10OFF during january for a 10% discount. Another new development is my studio wiki page and a knitting wiki update. I decided that it is better to organize technical information in one place to benefit users.
I also wanted to say thank you to blog readers, customers and store owners for supporting my work. It has been a fantastic year for me and it is only possible because of your support!

Thank you, I had this information a couple of years ago and have been searching my files with no luck this year, so thank you very much. I knit with a KM now but have been a weaver since 1974 so I love the idea of combining the two elements in my fabric creations. I really enjoy following your posts, your work is inspirational!
