Colorwork - Venezia

So I have:
- gotten the kit
- the needles
- courage?
- pattern
And here goes my first attempt at colorwork knitting. I guessed I was knitting on a tight tension, such that the hem puckered. So after completing like half the chart, I had to rip and start everything from the hem. Anyway, this is pretty common for colorwork beginners. They tend to tug a little more when changing colors. So beginners out there, so remember DO NOT pull when u change colors.

As of today, I have completed more than 2 repeats of the chart. Most probably I will be doing a V-neck modification via Maud's. More pics I hope, soon.

So beautiful when we saw it at the knit out. It is going to be warm beyond belief. Now you need to come to Minnesota with me in the winter. You can wear the sweater and buy more yarn!

That's a big first colorwork project! Can't wait to see how it comes along.
