I started this project last September and got a few inches done before I abandoned it for other things. I picked it up again a couple of weeks ago and have been making good progress.
Another good thing about knitting colourwork in the round is being able to change colours in the middle of the steek. After picking up the stitches all around and knitting the doubled garter stitch border, I will tack the border down, concealing all the yarn ends. I won't have to weave any in. Yay!!!
I'll take lots of pics when that time comes.
I was recently inspired by a double knitting tutorial to knit some hot pads for the glass table on our deck. I just used dishcloth cotton and whipped this up in a couple of hours.
