I made these out of thrift store yarn, using a modified S&B pattern, the intarsia for the grey is straight out of the book, the robot is all mine! Unfortunately you can't see his cute little antenae here. These were some of my first FO's, and I'd love some feedback!

I have been knitting for almost two years and still haven't done intarsia.  *sigh* (I actually hope to change that in the next month or two).

I think they are great and I am about to put my hand through the screen and take the robot one. Wink

Thanks for the feeback, guys! Both of these just had the yarn carried behind. It was my first time, so the backs of the colorwork aren't the neatest, but I was really happy with how they turned out. I think it's a big advantage that I haven't been knitting very long, so I just jumped into everything without having time to be scared of techniques.

They look cool! Could you post a photo of the robot's antennae?
