Spiderman….Spiderman

Knitted for my Darling Grandson, Jacob.  It will match his blue eyes and yes, it will be a little big on him at first, but hopefully he will love Spidey for a couple of years and love his sweater just as long. This was a fast knit.  I started it just before I finished Sarah’s dress on October 20th. I had the very bottom part of the neck done on him and then started knitting exclusively on it and finished today a week later.

I can’t wait to post pictures of the cute little blue eyed model in his sweater when he’s here in November. Here he is with his gorgeous Mama. Those blue eyes will look real good in this sweater, don’t you think?

I absolutely love this Spiderman design. I recently created a Cookie Monster one for my grandson's hat. I am very new to colour work. What I'd love to know is the exact techniques you used for the colours in this sweater -- intarsia? fair isle? duplicate stitch? Or was it a specific combination of these? Being such a newby, I would very much appreciate as many specific details as possible.
Thank you!

KTV: I used the intarsia technique in this sweater exclusively. Please check out my website: http://www.vickimeldrum.com
and click on the Intarsia link. Scroll down to the bottom for video on the technique. I've been told these have helpled a lot of people. I also have free charts on my site.
