A couple of days ago I stumbled upon a sale at my LYS, and returned home with a kilo of beautiful grey yarn. I'm making (and modifying) a design by Marianne Isager, Munken/Monk from her book Classic Knits. This is what my project looks like so far. I can't even remember when I last knitted intarsia, but it was probably some twenty years ago.

I like the border and how cleverly you joined it to the other. Good luck on your new project.

This is a lovely shawl, what are the colours different.I like both ;-))) Your adding border is the finishing touch("Der Tupfen auf das i").

Lovely comments, everyone!

Fadenstille: in reality the colour is somewhere between the what it looks like in the two photos! Funny, we have the same expression in Swedish: pricken över i - the dot above the i.

Danke schön, Marlies! Ich liebe "ein Traum in blau"!

The border looks great, you clever man. I've been looking through your photostream and admiring your work.
