Chocolate Brownies and Intarsia

Posted in Food & Cooking, Knitting

Life has been so busy recently that there hasn’t been much time for crafting but this morning I made a giant chocolate brownie and this afternoon I ate it. Also made a strawberry jelly with fresh strawberries for flu-stricken hubbie.

Last Saturday I popped along to a fab intarsia class at Knitshop and finally have a handle on how to create less-lumpy colour knitting. Learned lots of useful things about sewing in the ends, twisting the yarns and how to secure a new colour with a slip knot to improve tension.

This was my sample. You’ll notice a nice little hole on the left where the colours join – this will be fixed when sewing in the ends. There’s another nice little hole in the middle too. I’m now ready to go back to the stalled intarsia cardigan WIP and have another go, this time with less angry muttering.
