You don't need the team of CSI to figure out that this is Elmo. The back and sleeves are finished and being blocked. Normally I will weave in the ends of an intarsia project as I go along but this one is small and not terribly complicated so I left all the tails to the end.
Now the question is, can I weave in all the ends, sew the pieces together (it's got saddle shoulders) and work the neck ribbing by the birthday party tomorrow? I hope so but, if not, there should be no problem having it completed for Braydon's actual birthday on Monday.
It's been so much fun to do intarsia again. I love it and I've missed it. I like the results, the challenge and making something out of the chaos of all the yarns. I have another project to do right away after this one and then I'm going to pull out my intarsia cushion that's been resting for a while. It'll be good to get back to it again.
