Painterly Intarsia

Hi All,
Newbie to the Lounge here, but have been following Ann and Kay for years!
I love the latest field guide, Painterly, and following Kay’s lead have been knitting tiny houses, and making balsam sachets, with them. There is a Kites throw in my future. I am learning to embrace the tangles, but is it easier to knit intarsia on straights, would circulars just complicate things, or does it matter?

I’ve knit intarsia on both, the style of needle matters less to me than the material it is made of, but needles are often personal preference, you might love some that I dislike and vice versa.

I’m doing cityscape on a 16 circular. Metal - it’s working fine for me. I haven’t used straights in about 5 years for anything. (Nor dps either… Sleeved and socks done on 2 circs).

Havent used straights for about that long either! Thanks


As for me, if more than one needle is involved, I will misplace one! I love colorwork: I’m halfway through my Village Scarf and now a Daytripper cardi as well. Using a single needle actually makes juggling the yarn that much easier.
Have you had a chance to try both ways yet?
