This is the inside or wrong side view but I'm very pleased with the way my little plastic bags have worked out! For intarsia, one needs separate thread for each change of colour, as the colour isn't carried across the work. Tangling is very easy! This time, I have wound each separate yarn around my finger, leaving the "tail" which will be pulled from the inside of the tube of yarn, and slipping each into its own zip lock bag. It's working well!
One of the key things with intarsia is to keep the tension even - easier to say than to achieve when one is juggling 30 different threads! And it helps if you DON'T have a playful kitten (or an inquisitive toddler) around while you're working at it!
