That is just gorgeous. I love those colors together. Silver, are you a continental knitter? All your stuff practically looks like it was knit on a machine it's so neat. I still am in awe of the "ugly" side of that cream and green set you did from a while back...
Was that a free pattern? I love it.

I knit english primarially, but when I do color work, I knit the main color with my right hand, and the contrast color continental style with my left hand. It's so much faster than dropping and picking up each color! I also wet block *everything*. I don't even bother steam blocking anymore. Wet blocking really evens and smoothes the knitting up very thoroughly.

That cream n green set is from knitty.com... Baby Norgi by Wendy Johnson. I added the hat, socks and mittens myself though, using patterns for a similar set in the same yarn.
