I DID IT!!! WOOHOO!!!


Yeehaw, I did my first multi color pattern. Although I did screw up the first skeleton, I was impressed with the results! It wasn't a huge screw up as you can see, just enough to tick you off!! I would like to give credit where credit is due though. The pattern I used for this swatch test came from helloyarn.com
It is in the free patterns section. I thought it was too cool!!!




BUT ........does the back REALLY have to be this messy??? Sorry I am a bit of a neat freak and this is kinda not neat......perhaps that is why I didn't do this sooner!!??



Another first, I placed my first Knit Picks order. Kinda funny story actually. I cam e across the site one day quite by accident and looked through a few yarns and quickly dismissed it as JUNK!! The next day I was at a knitting freind of mine's house and she asked me if I had heard of it....I of course said yes and I thought it must be crap yarn...........believe me she was quick to set me straight on that one!! She pulled out bag after bag of luxurious yarns and I was in heaven, smelling and touching......yummmmmm. I can't wait to get my order!!!! Woohoo I love yarn and it was so cheap!! Finally you can knit a sweater cheaprer then you can buy one!! I also bought some of thier naked yarn so my daughter and I can dye it with Kool aid and I will knit her some socks......she is excited by the prospect!!!

First, the swatch is great! And I don't think the back looks bad at all.

Oh yeah, KP! Not crap at all--take it from someone who's ordered a time or two (or 3 or 4...) LOL

Have been enjoying your blog-found it on the Knitting Path ring. I love your two color knitting. Great job-especially for your first try! I am originally from Aroostook County. Good to see another Mainer here! Keep up the great work!
