Eunny's video on colorwork was great, but I'd like to have seen the correct ways to "twist" the colours in intarsia. Which colour on top?....when to twist, when not to.....something about "leftie-leavie"....?

I really got love to start fair isle mitts after watching Eunny's video, that's helpful. By the way, does anyone know about a fair isle cardigan (or jacket) that is displayed next to Eunny? I am wondering if I could get the pattern...thank you:)

Needle size??? I downloaded the Simple Colorwork Mitts and see that it can be worked in either chunky or worsted weight.........but I do NOT see any indication of the size needles to use.

I agree with LesaM about the needle size. I've knitted afghans in the past but I always knew what needle size to use. Even with my past experience I find the directions a little confusing. Janet

I LOVED the "Winter Twilight Mits as shown on episode 203. I tried multiple times to download the pattern but the other mit pattern featured that episode is the only pattern that shows up. I want the Winter Twilight ones. When may we expect that pattern to be posted?
