Knifty Knitter

Well, I've been practicing with my new Knifty Knitter. My first project is a toque for Art. I started off using only one strand of yarn, but the outcome was too open-weave and "lacy" looking, which I didn't think was quite right for a man. Besides, it might not be very warm.So, just to experiment, I bought another skein of a complimentary colour and added it so that I was using 2 strands at a time. It looked OK, but seemed to tighten up the weave.Here is what it looks like on the "purl" sideIt looks nice, and that is what I may end up doing, but in the meantime I've ripped it all back and have started again, but using the original yarn....2 strands at a time. I only have one skein, so am pulling the strands from opposite ends. I hope there'll be enough. If not, then I'll rip it back again and use the 2 different colours together throughout.

The two different yarns together are quite a nice touch. I bet Art will really like it.
