Double Knitting

A while back I saw double knitting demonstrated on Knitty Gritty and was intrigued. It was a technique I wanted to try someday. Well, someday is today. The Knitted Kitchens yahoo group is doing a KAL of a double knitted potholder. I cast on and did the first eight rows today. It's been pretty easy so far. The only tricky part was during the cast on, making sure that the two colors alternated. The designer recommended using a crochet cast on. I've used a crochet cast on many times before as a provisional cast on, but never as a permanent one. Here's what's done so far:

Side 1 through row 8

Side 2 through row 8

I made some more progress on my Monkey sock last night. I like the way it's turning out
