New Project

I'm making a pair of matching scarves for my mom and aunt. It's my first try at colorwork, and I was concerned about trying to do intarsia or fair isle with no "wrong side". I borrowed an idea from Debbie New in her book Unexpected Knitting. Rather than starting with a cast-on edge, I began with a single slipknot at the corner and made a triangle with increases on every row. Once I finished one color repeat, I began decreasing on WS rows, so it turned the corner and began to make a rectangle. Since I want the scarves to match, I decided to make both at the same time on one circular needle.
