I like intarsia ... a lot. I like all the colors, the finished projects and, especially, the challenge.  That was one of the reasons that I took to Kaffe Fassett's designs when I first discovered them. Before that I would knit something like a baby sweater with a rabbit on it. 

Later I discovered a company called Knit-o-Graf (now closed, I believe) and I thought I'd make almost every pattern that was published. I didn't do all of them but I did knit many of them. These were mostly for my daughter in the early to mid-80s, and for her friends. 

These included clowns holding balloons:

Raggedy Ann and Andy, with fringe for the hair:

And poor old Humpty Dumpty - sitting on the wall on the front and laying broken on the ground on the back:

Now, here it is,three decades later and I'm in Irving, Texas, and yesterday I taught a class at the DFW Fiber Fest and totally enjoyed myself.  I hope to do more teaching in the not-too-distant future.
