This is my contribution to the entrelac projects. I learned to do this a few weeks ago and I hope to have this finished in time to give it to my sister for Christmas. I'm using Nashua Vignette 100% handwash wool in color Earth. I'm on my 9th ball so far with one more to go and one ball to use for fringe. I've really enjoyed this technique and it's not near as complicated as it looks.

Be not afraid of entrelac. It is SO easy, it only looks hard!

And the shawl is gorgeous!

Thank you all. :hug: And, as Carmen says, it's looks a lot harder than it is.

Genevieve,

I took a class for 2 Saturday afternoons at my LYS. I'd tried doing it before from directions I'd found on the internet, but couldn't seem to figure it out. Having someone show me what to do is the best way for me to learn new techniques.

Sunny...the technigue is NOT hard, but at first it was confusing trying to figure out where to start after I'd put it down for a while. I had to put myself a sticky note on the shawl so I would know what to do. There's a lot of turning back and forth, but it's just knit and purl and picking up. Nothing really fancy to learn at all. Try it....you'll be amazed how fast it goes.
