 ???Hey everyone! I got the SnB book for Christmas (after shameless hinting) and am dying to try the wristbands. I am a little confused though. I am a beginner knitter and have never encountered the instruction to knit with 2 strands of yarn as Debbie tells us to in the book. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Also, am I supposed to use two strands of the same colour or two different ones? I need help! If you can drop me a line or send me in the direction of a good site, I will be eternally grateful!

You knit with two strands of yarn to make it thicker -- you just hold two strands together (from 2 balls of yarn is easiest) the same way as you would hold one strand that you were going to knit with.  And knit pretending like theyre just one strand.  I think the SnB pattern calls for using both the same color, but it would have a cool effect if you used two colors too... a good thing to experiment around with.  I made those wristbands myself for a friend (got the book for Christmas too!), but I used just one strand of a thicker wool yarn (which had been hand dyed and so the color had variations in it).  They turned out great.
