I really enjoy Two color knitting. I needed a break from my latest sweater, which is blocking as I write. It will be posted once the buttons are on. I wanted to use the motif patterns from Meg Swansen's knit along " Eli's Stocking" as seen on the School House Press web site. I did take liberties with the designs since I was making a hat and not a Christmas Stocking. The wool is a win from e-bay, so I don't know it's name. I just kept knitting until I was out of patterns I liked and the wool was running out. Like the mittens I have been making it is amazing how warm these double knit items are.
