Cedar Snowflakes

I have a photo of only one sock, but both are at the same point with only the feet to be added.

The red yarn is Knit Picks Palette, and the off-white is Knit Picks Bare Merino. I used 2.5 mm DPNs for all the single-colour knitting, and 2.75 mm for the snowflakes.

This was my first go around with two colours, and I loved it! I'd already been practising Continental knitting in preparation for holding a yarn in each hand, and I'm glad I did. Great fun! :)

I took this project away with me last week, but left the pattern behind, so I decided to use Cat Bordhi's Cedar template for the shaping at the heel. I thought it was a good opportunity to try something new.

The motif wasn't all plain sailing though. LOL. I won't bore you with it here, but further details can be found on my blog for anyone who's interested.

Thanks for the pattern. Anni! :)

Lovely!

I've not done 2 color knitting yet and am a bit nervous to start. With holiday knitting, I couldn't try these, but may give them a go after the holiday and put them away for next year.

Wonderful Christmas colour socks - they look terrific. I have one finished and am starting the second, my second pair will be knitted on smaller needles - for the foot as I like them a little snugger.

Lovely colours, and glad you got past the tricky start :)
