Double Knit, Double Trouble

Inbetween major projects right now, thought I would try something new... 2 color double knit.
Nothing too big a keychain fob, for my utility knife at work, (hate digging in my back pocket when it falls sideways, to replace the I-cord loop currently on it)

Anybody else in the Colorado Springs area?

I'm new to this site. I learned to crochet years ago, but haven't in a long time. Started knitting a few years ago, but quit after maybe a year because of hand problems. Picked it up again last fall, and now seem to be addicted. Not looking for a cure. Mostly knitting socks, lately.
