Flying the Jolly Roger

Yarrr

I am very pleased with this latest test swatch for the custom project. I really feel that I’ve got a handle on the intarsia techniques now. Just one thing, the upper left tibia is a bit thinner than the others, that’s because I got a little overexcited with the tension redistribution. But I can avoid that when I do the real thing.

I also wanted to show you this:

ends

This is the 66 tails of yarn that I wove into the back of the swatch and then snipped the ends from. It’s not a small job.
