Wind, Breathtaking Cloud Formations & Intarsia Knitting...........

By later afternoon yesterday, the wind turbine had to be turned off due to high winds.  We had a low pressure system blow through that created quite a picture in our skies.

Unfortunately, my digital camera just couldn't truly capture the amazing beauty that we saw.

The first of my new series for dogs and cats is now underway.  Intarsia is my favorite form of knitting and I learned years and years ago that the secret to working with all those loose ends is "manageable lengths."  For longer sections of color, I usually use about 6 foot lengths and less depending on the smaller areas.  Outline stitches are always worked after the piece is completed and worked in with duplicate stitch.  To me, it's like a puzzle and very hard to put down.  This sneek peek is of the back only because I don't want to spoil the surprise for you when it's finally completed.
