This was my first attempt at colorwork:

I had a really hard time deciding whether it should be done as all intarsia -- so I ended up doing kind of a hybrid of intarsia and fair isle. Is that totally unheard of?

For the largest area I twisted the yarn a la intarsia, but also carried the background color behind it to avoid joining a third ball of yarn. It seemed to work okay, but I'm wondering what the pitfalls (if any) are to doing it that way.

I have a few other letters of the alphabet I've charted and I guess I'm just looking for a little feedback before I attempt them! Thanks!
