FO - DANICA SCARF+photos of "pick up and purl"
I learned entrelac! It's really easy, when you get the hang of it. This is the Danica Scarf from, knitted with Teddy's Wool Himalaya. It's 1-ply chunky 50% wool, 50% acrylic, self-striping yarn on 6mm needles. IT IS HORRIBLE! It bled on me to death (that's for Holy Grail fans:happydance:), every time i had some knitting done, my hands were black and i had to wash them and it took 2-3 times for the color to come out. So i soaked the scarf in some vinegar and water and didn't help, the totally black squares became dark gray. But the knitting was fun, it was for a co-worker, she was thrilled with the results, but i warned her not to wash this scarf EVER again :teehee:.

what a bummer about the yarn bleeding, because it's BEAUTIFUL!!! Really nice job on the entrelac. Your co-worker will have a black neck now from it rubbing off! :) But it's really really lovely...I love how the colors blend so well!

Wow, great job! The entrelac is so gorgeous. Don't you hate yarn that bleeds on you?

Congrats on learning entrelac! What fun! You did a GREAT job!

Thank you :hug:
I actually think this scarf looks better with self-striping yarn, than the original with 2 colors. It looks more special to me. But the bleeding yarn was a turn-off, because i really enjoyed the technique :happydance:
