Knitting Up A Storm!


Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Looking at entrelac makes one think it is a pretty complicated process, but guess what? It is so freaking darn easy. For moral support my blogless friend Carol and I sat down at lunch yesterday and read the instructions together as I knit them.

I am surprised how easy it is. Here is my progress so far:

I do hope blocking helps this scarf, which I can't imagine why it wouldn't. It is pretty fun to knit, and I understand the process, which makes this knit so much easier. My mom is turning 70 on April 16th, so this will most likely be a pretty boring blog until I finish it because this is all I will be working on. Trying to meet a deadline is a pain in the ass, but it has to be done. If not, I'll wrap up what I have done and finish it after the date. Lets hope it doesn't have to come to that. I want to start Chris' sweater and I can't do that until this is finished.

Just wait until you figure out how to knit backwards so you don't have to constantly flip your work over.

It sure looks complicated but i have never tried entrelac before - maybe I should give it a go like you did. Good luck & hope you finish the scarf in time!
