TGIF: thank goodness it's free!, because whoa. This was my first intarsia project evar and while I got used to it, I don't think I'll ever want to do one again. Especially in a cotton-acrylic blend. T.e.d.i.o.u.s like crazy.
+ careful rearranging of full skeins. It was... fine.
|I was super great and not crazy. No, really. Just... fine.|
And then -- AND THEN -- after I'd finished all the intarsia, I had to teach myself some crochetin' stuff for the border. Crochet eats yarn like it tastes like chocolate; I used more yarn on that 4" border than I did on the entirety of the intarsia (469yds vs 475yds), which is BANANAS to me.
