Let's start off with this: I am not a fan of intarsia. I suck at intarsia. I will do anything to avoid intarsia.
Kaffe Fasset did a pattern for Modern Daily Knitting's Field Guide 16, and I kind of love it. As I was pondering what to do next, I started thinking--it would be fun to knit a felted pillow of four (maybe?) houses.
Then I started thinking--well what yarn? We have these cool rugs now and it would be nice to 'match' the rugs but not be too matchy matchy.
And then I remembered that I had some leftover Noro Kureyon Air which was used for this and this and I thought a. the colors were great and would match the tones of the rugs and b. it's thick so it will make a big piece and c. it will probably felt great.
So there's the first one. It's not the best intarsia but I can work on that. And I'll measure this and then felt it so I can figure out the best size to do.
And I ordered more Kureyon Air--I need about 20 grams worth of two colors and 10 grams worth of another two per square, and I can wind off what I want from the Kureyon.
