hi there mr. squirrel

I've been wanting to try intartia (or jacquard) forever. My friend Anna gave me a quick how-to about a month ago. I thought I'd forget but, after a few tries I was doing it. It's super easy too. The only problem is that it took longer then it should because of the twisted yarns. Since I was carrying the yarn not in use at the time in the back throughout the knitted piece and I had to keep wrapping it behind it made the yarns twist like crazy so I had to keep untwisting after almost every row. I'm sure there is a better way. The pattern is from this book that I got for my birthday.

He's super cute, don't you think? I'm thinking a scarf for Little M for the Fall maybe with some black stripes in it too.
