how to weave in ends as you knit – continental style

this has really become the summer of stripes for me, be them on shawls or sweaters, which means I have a million ends to weave in. I’ve been asked how to weave in ends as you go when you knit continentally, I guess most videos show you how to do it holding yarn on each hand? I find it more efficient to hold both yarns in my left hand and I think my tension is better this way. this is also how I hold my yarn when I knit colorwork. it takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do your knitting goes so much faster.

instead of explaining it with a bunch of pictures I thought I’d share a quick video. I say “quick” but it took me so many tries to get the focus in the right spot. I also had to do a bit of a voiceover, so I apologize now for my high pitched voice! I’m congested so it’s even higher than usual!

I hope I answered the question and you find this helpful. and if there are any other questions you’d like to ask let me know in the comments here.
