Off the very tiny needles: Union Jack Flag

I gave this flag as a gift to a knitter friend from England when she hosted a brunch to honor the Royal Wedding. I knit it on size 1 needles using needlepoint (Persian) wool. This project reminded me why I don't do intarsia knitting much. All those color changes on those tiny needles...whew! The pattern is from Debbie Bliss's The Knitter's Year. The book is full of small projects; I've already made several because they knit up so quickly. But the Union Jack, well, that one, not so quickly!
