Feeling like a Beginner

Hi all. Time flies. Two weeks until Christmas. I have been learning and practicing Barbara Walker's 2-color slip stitch "Mosaic" technique. My local yarn store had a fun small two sided bag project using Ms. Walker's technique. The sides were attached using the I-cord bind off. It could be a small bag (or a fancy pot holder). It was the prefect size to practice on.

I also made a green hat using a basic pattern by Lion Brand. The hat actually fit me because I took the time to make a gauge swatch and did a little measuring. Now I am ready for the cold, brittle winter air.

I just learned about the talented and gifted knit designer Jared Flood (Brooklyn Tweed). Reading his blog and looking at his various patterns is very informative and inspiring. I want to knit some of his designs someday.

Happy knitting to all. Onward we all go....Cullen

Your work is to cool. Can hardly wait to be that good at this.

Very cool Mosaic effect. It would be fun to use that same technique and make a maze out of it. It's almost a maze now. I really like the colors you chose as well; very vibrant and alive!

I like your colour work - it can be addictive so be careful. Glad you have a hat for the winter. Did you make it in the round. It is very attractive. I love functional knitting.

Very nice knitting, Cullen. Your hat turned out just great. I've toyed with mosaic but haven't done any major projects in it. May have to remedy that sometime.
