Horror may be overstating it. My argyle is shapring up nicely.
But look at the tangle of threads.
Craftsy’s intarsia class says not to use skeins. That’s all. Use bobbins even for the main color.
But around the internet there are pictures of boxes with multiple holes in the them, or skeins with their yarn threaded through the holes of a colander, and so forth.
The idea of cutting up the main color seems shocking.
