Another FO



Though I finished this sweater in March, it hasn't made it to the blog yet! Here it is:


It was made from Lamb's Pride Worsted in Aubergine, Spice, Orange-You-Glad and Sunburst Gold. The colours didn't come out great in the pics, and I've got to say the intarsia isn't as good as I'd like, but it was my first attempt at big-time intarsia. I haven't had much of a chance to wear it yet, but this winter it's gonna be a regular :)

The front is just plain, and the wings are my own drawing. Another thing about the sweater - it's my own design too. I've learned a few things making it, which will hopefully come in handy for the next time.

I can't believe this is your first intarsia and you designed it! I love the wings and the colors!

Thanks so much! I love what intarsia can do - I want to experiment more.

That is so fabulous! I haven't tried intarsia yet - you've inspired me to give it a try!

It's really not as scary as it sounds. I would recommend not doing 4 different colours for your first try - that got me sort of frustrated.
