. . . I is for Intarsia
As in, not interested. Don't even want to try. I am not opposed to other color work, but I just find intarsia, well, icky, and kind of grandma-like. When I think of intarsia I think of giant snowmen, pumpkins, or those collectible dolls with the big heads knit into giant sweaters. Sure, I've seen smaller, more lovely designs, but nothing that has ever seemed worth the effort. All those bobbins and tails and beginnings and ends and - ENOUGH!! I do not like them Sam I am. I do not like green eggs and intarsia.
