Tintin et Milou

J’ai commencé le chandail de Tintin!

It doesn’t look like much yet, but it should eventually resemble this:

Except with white where there’s yellow on the chart. This is the first time I’ve done a large amount of intarsia, and I don’t think I’m handling the colour changes very well, but we’ll see. I’m going to add the black outline in afterward using duplicate stitch, so that should make it a bit easier.

It’s fun to watch the picture start to take shape, even if most of it is an undifferentiated blob of white at the moment. And I certainly can’t complain that Mark isn’t letting me play with bright colours this time!

J’aime beaucoup ton pull Tintin! C’est bien merveilleuse :D All right, enough French for now. I’m trying to use it again (I took French Immersion until Grade 11, so I used to be bilingual, but lack of use has degraded it) to bring myself back up to speed.

Looks good to me - my first Intarsia work will either be Rogue Squadron mittens (from Star Wars) or the Pop Culture backpack from Stitch ‘n Bitch.

My first thought was giraffe, maybe with a goiter, and of course sideways. ;) Looking good
