I would like to try intarsia in the future, but I am trying to take baby steps and try one or two new things at a time with each pattern I am doing. I didn't realize there were better yarns and worse for intarsia, interesting. I will have to make sure I check that out before I start a project with that.

I love the feel of that yarn, it is much softer than I expected. Totally comfortable on bare skin.

Thanks again for all the compliments, makes me feel a little more confident for the next project. :D

Ooooh, that looks good--so cozy!! I love roomy and snuggly turtlenecks; I might have to make that one.

The yarn for the project was supposed to be a bulky wool, but I used the super soft instead and didn't change my needle size. It caused it to be very airy, and when switching yarn, it wasn't a tight switch. It just left everything very loose feeling. I think when switching colors it is best to make sure your stitches are tight enough for a good finishing picture.
