I have embarked on what I think will turn out to be a real challenge for me. Intarsia knitting. I have knitted a fair bit of fair isle in my time but have never before tried intarsia. For those of you who are not acquainted with intarsia this link will give you an idea of what it involves. Intarsia for dummies I used this site to get a general idea of what to expect.
The project I am working on is this. The character is Animal from the Muppets.
My daughter asked me if I would like another project and I am always happy to be knitting something that someone would like.
This is the progress so far. I am a bit daunted by the number of strands on the back but have been assured by the lady in the wool shop that once you weave the strands in it will look fine.
I am happy with the progress so far.
An update since I last drafted this post.
I think the stitches will look more even when all the ends are woven in. That is what I am hoping.

Oh my word….not in a month of Sundays. I am in awe. Looking forward to seeing the finished garment.
It is quite a job. I certainly post when I am finished.
It certainly is a challenge. I have started knitting the back section as well so I can take a break from the front when it becomes too challenging. The plain knitting of the back helps to relax me.
