Backyard battle

It comes out so nice, I'm knitting it twice!

I'm at it again. In the right corner, in the rose corner, we have the current champion, Backyard Leaves 1! In the left corner, the raspberry corner, we have the challenger, Backyard Leaves 2!

Backyard Leaves 2 is precisely identical to the first one, except the yarn is a different color. The rose-colored one is all mine, but the raspberry one will be for my friend Egle.

That's right. Two Backyard Leaves, neither in anything close to green. I've got the pink bug :-D.

Happy knitting,
Kathy, aka grumperina

    They look both beautiful! Backyard Leaves is next one on my list, although I will probably stick to a traditional green :-)

    Very original of you to use colors other than green! They look great. I wish I could be there so you could help with mine.

    Thank you both your compliments. Elizabeth, you can e-mail me privately if you need any help: I love the pattern, and I think it's very well written. Starting takes a bit of figuring out, but it's smooth sailing from there.
