Remembering the Past

Not too many years ago, I took a class from Beth Brown-Reinsel in which I learned to cast on with two colors.  I'd almost forgotten about the technique even though I see my work weekly.  As it turns out, I personally do not have much use for wool wrist warmers.  Neck warmth is what I need most often.  But that is another story.

Back to the two color cast on and why I see it all the time, but forget that I know how to do it.

It turns out that the wrist warmer fits a favorite water bottle perfectly!  This is bottle, suitable adorned, is my constant companion at knit groups.

So why do I forget about the techniques displayed in the fab sample of color work?

When the need arose, it finally clicked in.  I will confess that I had to get out my class notes (valuable stuff) and do a refresher.  And that, dear reader, is how this hat came to be.

A little bit of green in the cast on and then blocks of green marching about the hat. 

Always remember, and don't ever forget, we know more than we do.
