try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

Do you think intarsia would be better than stranded knitting? The designer says she uses stranded knitting throughout most of it and only uses intarsia in a couple of areas.

I don't have much interest in colour knitting (I'm a cable addict myself) other than that it's really pretty, but this scarf is so beautiful I can't not at least try. Besides, a new skill is a new skill, and intarsia doesn't look that hard, just time-consuming with all the bobbins and such. Stranded knitting is pretty basic, it seems, except I'd imagine it takes up more yarn than does intarsia.

I think I'd like to make this in black with grey lettering, and then the red. I know red, white, and blue are symbolic and all, but I think black would make a classier scarf. And yeah, I'm definitely gonna check out the LYS. If I can find one close enough.

I have no idea of how difficult stranded vs intarsia would be! But I think you could do it!

I think I could do it, but I probably will need a coach. If songdog didn't live so far away, I'd ask her. She can whip up a sweater without a pattern on impulse and thinks nothing of doing those intricate Norwegian colour workings. She's my knitting hero. :)
