Wow! That is so adorable! Great job on your first (huh?!? no way!!!) colorwork project. Perhaps I should have chosen colorwork for my KO project -- that's the only thing that scares me more than socks!

Thanks!! I have used two colors before in a pretty easy pattern (about 12 years ago!) but was afraid to try more then that. I always envisioned a tangled mess! But it turns out this pattern never uses more than two colors in each row and the ends were my biggest obstacle after trying to figure out the cast on. I thought socks would be hard too, and I made my first one just a couple months ago and now I am doing my second and third pair toe-up two at a time on two circulars! I have been adventurous lately LOL.
Good luck with your socks!
