The Land of Intarsia

I just love that word. Intarsia! It sounds made up, yeah? I not only love to say it, but wear it too. Here are some fun finds in the Land of Intarsia.

vocab lesson: I had no idea it has the same meaning for wood working too!

Intarsia is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours. As with the woodworking technique of the same name, fields of different colours and materials appear to be inlaid in one another, but are in fact all separate pieces, fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.

According to that definition this fairisle pattern should not be included, but it is just too pretty to leave on the desktop.
