Intarsia Shawl

Lately, I've been burning the candle at both ends and according to a very AWESOME lady, in the middle too.  I have something that many of you may know as...too many irons in the fire.  Yeah, imagine that.  I mean I do have 3 teenage boys, 3 dogs, 3 horses, 3 cats, try to maintain a house and a tiny little piece of dirt, not to mention a major hub in a great homeschool group.  Even if my candle weren't being burned from both ends and the middle, the fire would still be hot enough to at least make the wax soft. 

Here is one of my latest projects. 
Intarsia is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colors.
My friend Jennifer (who is a knitting queen) hand died the yarn and gave it to me for this project.  How totally awesome is that?!
