The day is done. The house is quiet (FUCKING FINALLY. OI.) and you’re ready to sit down, turn on a show and grab some yarn and a hook.
You finally feel some sense of ease creeping over your brain.
You grab your *ahem* AMAZING lumbar pillow you crocheted for yourself and flip off the crazy and start channeling the calm.
And then (of course) you throw your favorite lapghan over you and get to stitching.
At least for a few minutes….before someone appears and needs something…
Then you flip the crazy back around for a few minutes. #shrug
aka The Boring Shit.

Change Colors Fair Isle Method>
You’ll see this called Intarsia in the video, but I have since learned that, after all this time of doing this thing, this method is actually called Fair Isle.
Intarsia is specifically where you would use a separate bobbin for each and every section where the color changes (using the video’s example, the H, I, ! and Background would all have a separate bobbin in Intarsia. Where Fair Isle, the colors are carried across the wrong side of the work.
