This is the Fluffy Collar as modeled by Sadie, our 9 year old Italian Greyhound foster. Doesn't she look fabulous? This is my first attempt at knitting with two strands of yarn, and my first attempt at knitting with a novelty yarn. I used Lion Brand Micro-spun sport in black, and Lion Brand Fun Fur in Purple on size 10.5 bamboo DPN's. I've got two other female dogs in the house who are also getting this collar, and two males who will get the Supersoft Collar from the same issue, done up in the sage Lion Suede.

Casting on with two colors separately
Recently I wanted to knit something using two colors of yarn from the cast-on row, but I didn't want to "wrap" the yarns. That is, I wanted to cast on 1 "stitch" of color A and then one stitch of color B.
So I did. I cast on 1 st of A, then 1 st of B, then 1 of A, then 1 of B and kept repeating that A/B/A/B cast-oning. (Might one call the Abba Cast-on?)
Then I PURLED the first row using ONLY color A. Then, turning, I purled right back in A on row 2.
Then for row 3, I purled using only B -- and purled back in B for row 4.
