Mosaic Knitting

DSC06344 
I've started the mosaic section.  This is my first mosaic knitting ever.  In mosaic knitting you work each row twice - first with one color, slipping the stitches to be worked in the second color, then you go back and knit the second color, slipping the stitches you've already worked.  You have to be careful not to work too tightly, and with each row being worked twice, it takes a little bit of time.  I've done two rows, so I've worked across the piece four times at this point.  My second yarn is the same as the first yarn (Pagewood Farms Yukon), but this colorway is Misty.  There are some places in the yarn where the second yarn almost matches my main color, so my mosaic will probably fade in and out some, but I'm expecting it to be a little muddy.  If I were looking for a well defined mosaic section, I'd have chosen two high contrast colors.  We'll have to see how it actually turns out.

I think it will be lovely - and look a bit like a multicolor faire isle with the Misty.

I did my daybreak shawl in a similar fashion with two yarns that has some overlap in the colors. The affect is lovely, with the stripes fading in and out a bit. I bet the mosaic knitting will be very nice.
