All skewed up

Richmond knitters is knitting skew as a knit a long, and I was pretty excited. I've wanted to knit this for a while and thought it would be super fun to knit it with others. It has been amazing to see other peoples and how good they look (Sonia and Ursula, you know who I'm talking about.)

On Wednesday I cast on my skew. And the fabric has knit up a bit loose, which is strange, because I have used the base yarn before, on the same size needles and it looked fine. I've started the second one, and I think it looks better, but I suspect my gauge has changed a bit (between lunch and this afternoon? Weird) Anyway, I'm really happy with the way the stripping came out, and we'll see whether they look anything like a pair once the second one is done.

    I'd never thought to do them with two yarns - love the effect you've got with it.
