Finished object

Finished bit of knitting.  It's a Liver (rhymes with "diver") Bird, symbol of Liverpool and in particular of the Liverpool Football Club.  That's soccer for Americans.  It's just a hotpad or table decoration.  Gave it to James, Demetrios' godson, an enthusiastic Liverpool supporter.

I decided to make it double-sided.

I can't even imagine the smoothness of the color-changing moves that made not just one side but two sides come out so that you can't see the mechanics of switching the yarns. Wow. That's skill.

Take care & God bless

You're very kind. This is double knitting, a technique that allows nearly complete freedom with two colors. Googling on 'double knitting' will get you tutorials, videos, and a short, sweet explanation from Wikipedia.
