Lady Eleanor entrelac madness
For a long time I've been admiring the pictures of the Lady Eleanor stole in SCARF STYLE, and then all of a sudden it hit me and ... I started two!!
The one on top is being knitted with Noro Silk Garden in shade 217. After I realised that entrelac was not as complicated, I just had to grab a skein of Rowan Tapestry (Shade 173 here) and give it a go. The thinner needles make for less growth per hour, but the gentle change of colours is a relaxing knit for the eyes, especially at nighttime. I am planning to give the Rowan stole to my other half's mum...her birthday is in January, and depending how soon I finish it will be a Christmas or birthday present :)
I am a bit worried by my obsession for the entrelac technique...yesterday, while stirring Quorn in the wok, my mind was playing with the idea of starting another project with Noro Kureyon... a bag to felt in entrelac!?!...help!
