I hope you don't mind ...

but I have been persuaded to show an example of my colourwork. This is a cotton sweater knitted some time ago and taken from one of the Rowan magazines.

Oh Christine, the work is

Oh Christine, the work is stunning, Your creation sparks so many impertinent and invasive questions. Please share more info -
Did you work the intarsia in the round or flat?
It looks like a great yarn and the colors are so pure...what kind of yarn?
What did you like best about this project?
What did you dislike the most?

PS...I love your crisp and direct style...especially when you make an observation after all my caterwauling. Please do it more often...keeps the conversation in balance.

You make me laugh! I worked

You make me laugh! I worked this piece in the flat with Rowan Cotton DK, and for cotton it has a nice handle which also gives the sweater some drape. Before this piece I had never done intarsia, but I went to a tutorial and on the way home I went into a LYS and decided to go for it big time. I liked best the joining in of another colour so that I could see the shape developing. I liked least the darning in of all the ends, but it was worth it. It is a much worn and well loved piece. Thoiught: am I the ying to your yang of posting?

This is often a bawdy, say

This is often a bawdy, say what you think, let all the poison in the mud "Rise Up!" kind of site. And far more often, it's a thoughtful, concerned and avuncular respite. I, for one, enjoy having both. The philosophy of opposites has so many exceptions I am forced to conclude, "No." However, I do enjoy your posts whenever they are made. Please, make more.
