First of all, thank you all to your warm comments on my last post! I tried replying most of you directly (as far as blogger allows that), but in case you have not heard from me - all of your comments are most appreciated.
Now onto some knitting content...
Two knitters were surprised to hear/ see how I knit colourwork, so I thought I will post a picture here.
I do hold both of the yarns in different hands, this prevents knots and the need to untangle them. However, I also turn the knitting inside out. It helps with the tension a lot. I thought that's the way everybody does that, but some surprising faces taught me otherwise. So that would be interesting to know - how do you do colourwork?
This particular pair of mittens was started on a skiing weekend in January (well, I was not the one skiing, obviously), but I broke one of the needles and did not have a spare one with me, so it accidentally went into hibernation. I took this along now, though, and pick it up inbetween all the baby knits when I feel I need some challenge.
