First color work

I've been wanting to try Fair Isle and intarsia for a while now. Here it is, my first attempt:

So far, so good! I look forward to finish the little sheeps in white and see better if the tension is good. It seems fine, but it's hard to say when it's on the needles.

Time to go outside! It looks like it's going to be lovely day again!

Oh my! I can't wait to follow along to see how it's going (taking advantage of a lovely day does come first though).

Enjoy your day. :)

Tu sais que tu m'impressionnes?

looks great so far!
I've tried Fair Isle and intarsia but had no luck, I always end up with huge holes!
I look forward to seeing your progress!

Blocking does wonderful things for intarsia. Looks lovely so far.

If you tension does end up looking a little wonky, just remember that blocking makes color work a thousand times better.

Avec les couleurs originales en plus. Du grand art. La luminosité de ta photo rend tellement bien les couleurs. Le dos des moutons présage bien, sans défaut de tension.

Intéressant de voir la régularité de ton tricot de si près avec tous les détails dans les changements de coloris.

T'as de la chance d'avoir un nouveau bébé dans ton entourage. Enfin...c'est lui qui en a de t'avoir tout près.

Work hard! It's difficult this fair island, don't you think? I have been trying with a little needle case and with a little purse. It was hard to find the correct tension for each threat of wool!!!
Besitos.

Ce modèle m'obsède au point de chercher un bébé dans mon entourage exprès.

Cette photo nous laisse sur notre appétit. C'est voulu de montrer à peine que le dos des moutons?

Coquine va!
