Well, not really. Some folks may recall that I knit an intarsia version of my Poppy Field Shawl and wore it to Rhinebeck. The original shawl was designed to be a simple and easy knit:
Then I decided to try lace & intarsia at the same time:
Quite a few people asked me how to do it and I promised to make a workbook for it so that other people doing it wouldn’t feel like they’d lost their minds trying to do lace and intarsia all at once.
It’s done! The workbook is 8 pages long and has guidelines, calculations, instructions, and charts. It’s pretty darn detailed. If you’re looking for a new and interesting challenge, you can buy the Poppy Field shawl pattern for $6 (or buy the whole Summer in Provence series of shawls for $15) and this new workbook is included.
Everyone who’s already purchased the pattern should have already received an update.
Phew, it’s good to have that one off my plate. Now on to the next thing, which might just be mindlessly knitting more ornaments for the tree.
