In every dark cloud there is a silver lining

Hi guys,
After tinking my last scarf...i got the idea to work with different color combination. Since my project has been with one color. So I took on the challenge and with a suggestion from a fellow MWK member, Mark, I set out on an attempt to learn Intarsia. I made a small swatch but I think I have raised my skill level a half notch or so... :-)

Now I will be able to knit cables/braids in multiple colors.

Here is the small swatch...What do you think.

I like both the braid and the gray and orange color combination it gives the gray a great color pop. I could very easy see that on a scarf or sweater.

That is very fine. Great job...if you hadn't said so, I'd never guess it was your first attempt.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Very cool. I have been too chicken to try color work yet, so I've been knitting in one color at a time. Not counting self-striping yarn, of course.

Very nice! I've been knitting for about a year and have not attempted color work. I think that the one orange weave will really pop. I like it.

Cool! That's a great way to learn cables. You can see what each set of stitches do, and which part of the cable is where, and how to cross them. They are fun!!

Wow - I'd say those skills of yours are great!! Hard to believe you've not been knitting all your life. Can't wait to see what else you're able to accomplish!
