I just cast on for my first stranded colorwork project. I'm both kinda excited and very nervous. This is pretty much straight stockinette with the only patterning being provided by the yarns. Keeping even tension with two yarns will be a challenge.

Gack!

On the other hand, if it works out, this will definitely be one of my extremely cool projects. :)

We shall see.

Well, that was awkward. Trying to manage two yarns, one Continental style and one English style, when I've not knit English in about 40 years. But I was starting to "get" it a little bit when it turned out that the difference in size/weight between the two yarns involved was just too much.

*sigh*

But since it appears that I CAN do it, I'm off to search for the colors of contrasting yarn I want in the same weight as my background yarn. Then I get to practice and practice and practice some more.
