this is my first knitting project.  my mother taught me how to knit a long time ago but i never really did anything with the knowledge.  but i decided that i needed to venture into knitting cause my crochet projects are good but not warm enough.

what a kick butt first project!  Tackling color work can be kind of scary at times!

Great job, WingedWallFlower! I am also a beginning knitter and I've been on a vehement search for instructions on monogramming (how/when to switch colors for the appropriate results), but I haven't been successful.  I'd love to utilize your monogramming idea on my next scarf project.

beans on toast, look for a tutorial on intarsia, that explains how to change the colors, and the when is all dependent upon which chart you choose.  Smiley

Wow! I'm so envious of your knitting talent!  Cheesy That's definately a cool project. The pink and black colors go awesome together. And you're right... everyone needs some love! Smiley

Wow ! Good job! Im impressed that you took on 2 colour knitting for your first project. I knitted about 10 scarves before I took on fair isle. Thats so great! I love people who are multi talented and can knit & crochet. i wish I knew both! Seriously, mad props for taking on something a lot of begining knitters shy away from!
