Colorwork!
Standed knitting, Fair Isle, etc., were one of those monsters in the closet for me. Just way too much for me to do. Until last night! After reading a bit of EZ's Knitting Around I just Did It!

It's really not hard! Pics on my blog.

Very pretty! I like that stained glass effect of the variegated yarn with the black! I've been meaning to try colorwork, and now you've got me fired up. It will have to wait until after the Christmas knitting, though.

Very nice!
I love the super colors combined with the black and white--it looks really cool.

I love the colors. But I thought there was only one pic and couldn't figure out what the deal with having mittens that said "WAR" on them. It wasn't until I finally scrolled down and saw that there was an M on the end.
