I've finished one half of my Union Jack Tea Cosy! I am so happy with it...
....but man-o-man is intarsia messy! Look at all of those ends!!! Ugh!
I've started the second half and it's coming along even faster than the first! Next, I need to knit the two lining sections, sew it up, and I will be done!
The greatest thing I have learned during my adventures with intarsia is the importance of yarn butterflies. It makes keeping up with all of the different strands so much easier, even though the picture above slightly contradicts that statement. Check out this video to learn how to make yarn butterflies like these.
