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. ;)

thanks everyone!!!! :)

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:

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.

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!

Its understandable to be scared of, say, jumping out of an airplane, or bungy cord jumping. Intarsia? It's just changing colors!

Oh I dunno.. those things sound ok, they only last a short time ;) Intarsia sounds too scary for me just yet :rofling:
