Stranded Can Be Fun!

Oooh! I'm about four repeats into the Blue Herrings and I LOVE STRANDED COLORWORK! It's so cool! It took me a minute or so to grasp the concept of switching the colors. I'm going on instinct so if it's incorrect to hold one color in one hand and the other in the other, then tell me, but that's what I'm doing, throwing MC with my right and CC with my left, and it's coming out all nice and neat.

Totally loving it.

The casting-on of the CPH was postponed due to infatuation with stranding.

Sooooo impressed with the stranded colorwork. I'm just not that coordinated at this point. I do hope that a picture or two will be forthcoming so that those of us in the monochromatic world can "ohhhh" and "ahhhhh!"

On my first and only successful colorway attempt, that's exactly what I did, with the alternating MC and CC method. Can't wait to see pics!
