OH.... MY.... GOSH!!!! I'm impressed!

That is simply stunning and looks perfect. I see no lumps or loose ends sticking out the front side or holes or dropped stitches... in other words, either you're really good at catching and fixing booboos (like I try to but always seem to miss one or two) or you are just an amazing knitter! Let's stick with amazing!

Keep us posted on how this goes. I have never dared anything quite like that. Heck, I feel "fancy" doing cable stitches! You do beautiful work.

Thank you, Angela!

JGM--The back of this sweater is still kind of messy--it's a combination of stranded and intarsia with lots of yarn being connected and disconnected all over the place. When I weave in all the longer ends, it will kind of look like a puzzle.

The second picture is of a true Fair Isle, where the yarn is carried all the way around.

OMG
That's soooooooooooooooooooooooo impressing!!!!!
And did I see it right that you even managed to already weave in some of the ends?
Apart from the fact that I suck at Intarsia, I would probably not motivated enough to weave in the ends once I'm finished knitting.
...did I mention I'm impressed?

Thanks!

I tried to weave in as many ends as I could as I went along. As long as everything's secure, I'm not too concerned about what it looks like inside. Once it's done, I'll be the only one who sees it.
