First of all, I’ve got a little bit of extra cash at the moment, so I picked up a couple balls of Patons Soy Wool Stripes the other day. I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while now and I was at Michael’s, so hey, why not? For some reason, maybe all the entrelac scarves I’ve seen hanging around lately, I thought learning entrelac would be interesting and who can’t use another scarf? I mean, it was 50 degrees today, but it’s supposed to snow tonight. Its New England, it’s always potential scarf weather :-) Anyway, for some odd reason I find entrelac completely fascinating and addictive. Part of it is probably because this is my first time using yarn like this, but it’s also just such an ingenious technique! I use Eunny Jang’s entrelac tutorial in the latest Interweave, which could not have been easier to follow. Unfortunately, I don’t think two balls of this yarn are gonna cut it. I can afford more but it means trekking back to Michael’s which means driving the boy’s car, because mine has a flat (I realized after the fact that I should have taken a picture of the piece of glass in my tire so i could blog about it but it was too late…)
Without further ado (am I the only one who hate when people write “a due” or “adieu” instead of “ado”? “Ado” is right, right?):
Those were taken yesterday…Since then, it’s at least doubled in size. Like I said, I’m addicted.
I also ripped out Rogue and swatched for the Dollar and Half cardigan. I don’t have swatch photos but I have photos of Rogue being frogged :-)
So close to done, I know!
So now I’m ready to start the cardigan! It might take a while though, I’ve got lots of other things I’d like to finish, and lots of schoolwork coming up. I’ve been working on the Razor Shell Cami a lot too, but it doesn’t like much different. Might be while ’til I update again, I think the rest of the semester is going to be pretty busy.
