I remember seeing some entrelac socks in beige and teal and it just so happens I just bought some sock yarn from a KHer in exactly those colors...............do I dare?????? Is it difficult??????????????:noway:

Entrelac isn't difficult, just takes a bit of getting used to. It's pretty much coming down to knitting only a certain number of stitches at a time, rather than the whole row or round. It takes a little bit of practice to get down, but on the whole, it certainly isn't difficult.

I think you might mean Eunny Jang's pattern in the Spring 2007 issue of Interweave Knits?

Yep they are in the Spring issue of Interweave knits... (http://www.interweaveknits.com/backissues/SP_07.asp)they were my first toe up socks... I didn't make them as knee highs though :teehee:....It also went faster once I started knitting backwards instead of turning...it's not hard at all...I say give it a try..

I took classes at my LYS two years go and made an Entrelac bag. But I forgot now how I did it. I have a few books on it but I am the kind that needs to SEE it done then I get it pretty quickly. Darn...I should have made something else in Entrelac sooner so I'd remember.

Entrelac is a lot of fun and entrelac sox are even more fun. I knit one... made it a knee high, but haven't finished the second one yet. I do recommend learning to knit backwards (without turning) because turning your work every 6 stitches takes up a lot of time. Entrelac is fun because you only knit one little square or rectangle at a time so it feels like it's less work than it is. ;)

I loved knitting my Entrelac socks! I did the same as dustinac and made them regular sock (crew) length instead of knee highs. Mine can be seen here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/84341985@N00/741982136/

I LOVE doing Entrelac. I am working on the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole (http://www.figandplum.com/archives/000623.html). This one is not my. I :heart: to knit,:knitting: but working this wrap has been so much more fun. I do run into trouble:frog: but once you get HOW it is made up then It is easier and so much fun. I can't tell you how much fun I am having making this wrap.:woot: that is one reason I am not on here that much lately because I am knitting up the wrap.
Just in case the first link does not work, here are a couple more of the same wrap (http://www.thisisknit.com/lady-eleanor-entrelac-stole). Heres a link to a lot of them (http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=lady%20eleanor&w=all&s=int)on one page.
