Intarsia Knitting

I tried my hand at knitting an intarsia piece.  If you are not familiar with intarsia it is a design or picture that is knitted in a different color on the item.  I tried it with the Texas dishcloth pattern that I knitted up a few months ago.  Wow, what a mess.  I had so many strands of yarn off of it that it was such a tangled mess every time I turned around. I probably also need to figure out how I ended up with some red yarns in the blue sections when that wasn't my intention.

All in all it is not too bad for my first try at it.  At some point I should probably take a knitting class to see what I'm doing wrong.
