Sometimes the wrong side is so right!

Ahhh… colorwork. I’ve only tried intarsia once in the past, to quite disastrous results. But I decided to give it another go. With the Tomato. I cast on last week, and that sweater is fast like whoa. But I digress. I have beautiful pictures to show you:

It is not a Tomato, it is a chocolate covered pecan. Cocoa and Butter Pecan Main Line from Knitpicks. Overall, I don’t *love* KP yarn, but this one is very nice. It’s a true worsted cotton/merino blend and it’s round and sproingy. But wait, look at the wrong side:

I am so proud of myself. My floats are all even and happy. And since I taught myself continental the weekend before last, I was able to do it two-handed. It worked so nicely. Now I want my next project to be fair isle. That or a malabrigo tilted duster…. (A girl can dream).

    Discovering two-handed knitting for colorwork (after oh, 19 years of dropping each strand to change colors and getting them all twisted) was one of my greatest knitting achievements/epiphanies, after learning continental.

    Looks great!
