Twist and Shout with Knitting Daily TV Episode 906
We're throwing a dance party of this episode of Knitting Daily TV with fun fashions, yarns, and more. Join host Eunny Jang and experts Clara Parkes and Shay Pendray for faux fur, cables on a curve, a look at novelty yarns, and much more.
Eunny begins this episode with a short-row, cable method used to knit the fun River Slippers, a design by Kyoko Nakayoshi from the Winter 2011 issue of Interweave Knits. With this method, you're cabling on the curve to make the continuous cable around the toe of the slippers. These girly slippers are easier to knit than they appear and make great gifts for a special girl or women in your family.
Eunny is wearing the Beulah Cardigan by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark, featured in the Spring 2012 special issue of Knitscene magazine.
Shay Pendray, Laura Bryant, and Barry Klein bring fun accessory projects to this episode that are made of faux fur! That's right, no animals were harmed in the process of making these fun, soft, luxurious designs. Download the Foxy Lush Cowl, the design that Laura is wearing in this episode, and try your hand at knitting with this great "furry" yarn.

Whether you're ready to knit an entire garment in beaded yarns, or just add some novelty yarn to a small element of your knitwear, you'll agree these yarns are fun, funky, and great additions to your yarn stash.
