Intarsia - I FINALLY DID IT!

It’s not quite a FO yet, but the intarsia part is done after MUCH frogging. (I think this makes the 5th attempt at this flap) I know it’s not perfect or anything, but I’m pretty freakin excited nonetheless, and Laura will get her now one month overdue birthday present after all. :wink:

:happydance:

Oh how wonderful! That looks great!

WOW!! You’ve inspired me!! I’ve been a bit afraid of getting too frustrated with it–but I’m going for it! GREAT JOB!

It looks fantastic to me! :smiley:

Looks great! My try wasn’t successful, but I’ll try again soon!

Looks good! Did you carry your blue yarn across the back? :??

thanks everyone!!! :slight_smile:

ingrid, i did wind up carrying the blue and the yellow across the back for the star. most of the attempts, i started doing new strands for each “section” of the blue and star, and i wound up with absolute spaghetti and was still messing it up. i re-watched the intarsia episode of knitty gritty and that’s where i saw the carrying, so i opted for that. not as nice on the back, of course, but it worked! watching amy’s video a LOT really helped too, but the thing about the right and left decreases didn’t click until last night and that was a huge help too.

The back of intarsia never looks all that good, anyway–it’s the front that counts, and it looks great! :thumbsup:

:cheering: Great job :cheering:

Fantastic intarsia!! I love how the points of the star bend or curl…or do whatever it is they’re doing!

Awesome accomplishment! I haven’t tried intarsia yet…not quite brave enough yet. I know that eventually I’ll come across a pattern that makes me decide I MUST do it.

It looks great! I always love the colors you pick.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORAY 4 U !!!

Great job! I’m too scared to try intarsia or fair isle on my own, so I’m going to take two classes in May at my LYS. I hope my instarsia looks as good as yours!

As someone who still hasn’t braved Intarsia or Fair Isle, I think it looks GREAT! Congrats!!

Awesome! great work!

My one and only attempt at intarsia didn’t turn out, so I’m completely in awe… it looks fab! :thumbsup:

Yours is terrific. I just tried doing this for the first time and no one could tell what my picture was!!! OY. I will post it and see if anyone here can recognize it. I think the back of yours looks great too. Neat. I did the carry along and it’s not so great looking. Hard to do, lots of patience needed…and you Succeeded!!! Way to go!!! Your nie :XX: ce will love her new pretty sweater with the wonderful star!

:thumbsup: Looks great!

Congratulations! It looks wonderful!
