Move your mouse over the photo to see
the other side of this swatch.

This afternoon I popped into my local coffee shop to buy some beans and treat myself to a mocha.  While there I was lucky enough to spot a knitter working on this double knit scarf.  Color work and double knitting!?  Had to try them.

Love it all, now tell me how you do that (the cursor switcharoo, the double knitting I'll learn on my own).

Really neat! I had not thought about combining double knitting with intarsia.

How cute! I think that may need to be added to my list of next year's Christmas knit gifting...
