Ready...Set...Intarsia

I had forgotten how quickly the inches add up when using chunky yarn.  The ribbing knit up in a flash on the back of the sweater!  After that there were only 2 plain rows of stocking stitch to knit and then the pattern jumps right into the fun stuff - intarsia!

I took a few minutes to wind the yarn butterflies,


and here they are after 2 rows of knitting.  So far everyone is behaving and I don't have a tangled mess on my hands.


It was also a beautiful night for a walk.  




I hope everyone is managing to stay cool during these super hot days!

Looks good :) I only found out that "colour work" knitting had another name a couple of years ago - and I've been doing it for the past 25 years!
