The Dark Side

I've order the yarn to do a project in intarsia.
Insert silent scream here.
The project that lured me to this dark and scary place?
A shawl by Pricilla Gibson Roberts from Handknit Holidays:

It's knit from Mountain Colors Bearfoot. I ordered it from Fuzzy Mabel Sunday & it shipped today.

Handknit Holidays is the latest book from Melanie Falick

I have a pattern in it, too. A scarf, of course.

I think that might be doable in Fair-Isle if that helps. It is absolutely gorgeous.

First, great pattern. Your scarves are fab.

Second, I kinda like doing intarsia. I would do more if there were patterns like the one you chose.

Brave brave woman. The pattern looks lovely, but I gotta say I wouldn't think that knitting it would be any kind of a "holiday" for me--more like an extended tangle session. There probably isn't much market for a book titled Handknit Hell-On-Earth (though if they needed anyone to knit up a tangle of samples I would volunteer my services).

And I love the scarf pattern, especially in green. I'm thinking I might need to make one for myself (sez Kate Queen of Selfish knitting).

I just ordered this one (sight unseen!) and I love the look of your scarf. I just knew I would love this book--thanks for the little preview ;)

Have you tried to get the gauge for the shawl? I can't seem to get the gauge to 9 sts per inch. I am a bit scared of the colorwork, but it is amazing!
