I’ve been knitting dedicatedly for a while now, and have never feared to try anything. So I was shocked — shocked, I tell you! — to realise I’ve never done any intarsia! Of course I knew the theory. But looking back at projects all the way from 2008, I couldn’t find a single intarsia’d stitch.

Well, that’s been remedied now:

I’m still chugging away at the sleep sack. I’ll write about all the design decisions in the FO post, but at least now it looks like what I imagined. There was a point where I was worried it would be weirdly long and lumpy.

In other random news, I jumped on the adult colouring book bandwagon:

And ordered even more sock yarn:

Thyme, Nectar and Ginger from Madelinetosh. Very botanical, no?

    The yarn colours are gorgeous. I’m going to attempt intaria but crochet. Wish me luck.

    I recognise the baa-ble hat pattern, as I have knitted a few of them last winter, but what is it? a dress? a top?? I love it 🙂
