Have I ever mentioned how much I love mosaic knitting? It's freaking brilliant. You create this amazing colorwork, but only use one color at a time, slipping the stitches you want to be in the opposite color. It can be done on garter or stockinette stitch, so the possibilities are endless. It just so happens I'm wearing mosaic socks today.
Pattern: Masonry by Kate Gilbert. Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage in Marine and Crystal Palace Yarns Sausalito in Big Sur.
I also have a mosaic cowl on the needles.
Pattern: Earth Weave Cowl by Kim Sequeira. Yarn: Cascade 220 in various colors.
Now I'm eyeing the Optimist Shawl by Lisa Hannes. Here are the colors (Cascade Heritage again) I'm planning to use. Don't they just scream "OPTIMISM!!!" I love light, bright, happy colors.
I'll very likely start that one this weekend.
What knitting techniques are you particularly fond of? What techniques would you like to learn?
