I've tried my hand at double knitting before; and I really like it. But I really couldn't figure out how to incorporate color work into it. Now, I finally figured it out thanks to an online tutorial. So here's my first try at it (the color work, that is).

Very nice. I have done a bit of double knitting - to say I have tried it - but never a full project. Used to do double weaving, long time ago, and enjoyed it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

The tutorial is at http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=142. It covers pretty much everything about double knittting, including increasing and decreasing. I have seen the Uncle Argyle scarf before... and I love it. If I do attempt it, I think I would go with something neutral, like brown and beige/ tan. Sounds like I might have another project to start on! =]

Awesome job! If you're interested more in double knitting, Lucy Neatby has a dvd about it, and she shows you everything you could ever want to know about it! My personal favorite thing is using a tubular cast on for double knitting.
