Hello all,

I have another FO, a sweater with an intarsia afro motif. I was thinking of using a the image of Star Trek's Lt Uhura or Foxy Brown or Angela Davis but I the end I chose to simplify it. I used Cascaade 220 to make it. I was an easy project to make, I figured out the shaping using graph paper, I will be doing that from now on. I love it.

Absolutely amazing!!!  Do you have any close-ups of the motifs?  The knitting looks fantastic.

Congratulations on a great FO.

Oh my gosh I love it. Its elegant but still a bit silly at the same time. And the purple and cream? are amazing next to each other. I really dig the collar.
