- I used both methods,
- I used scrap yarn (conveniently pre-wrapped in tiny leftover size skeins),
- I am not intimidated, and
- I have the seed of an idea for an intarsia project.
*In stranded knitting you carry two yarns at all times, and the wrong side of the fabric has horizontal stripes of un-knit yarn. Fair Isle sweaters are made by stranding. Intarsia assigns each block of color a tiny skein, so you knit with one skein until a color change, twist it once around the next skein to attach it, and then drop the old skein to knit with the new skein.
