DS chose the colour combination of blue and green, obviously having never heard the adage "blue and green should never be seen"! I think I've finally cracked knitting on double pointed needles. By the time I got to the head I'd managed to eliminate the ladder effect you can get when changing needles. Which is just as well as my next project involves knitting on five needles! Pictures will be forthcoming when there are more than a few rounds to show you.
