Entrelac shawl
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.

It's gorgeous, and the colours are just stunning. Way to go! I'm still too chicken to try entrelac.

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

And the shawl is gorgeous!

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

'Tis the season for entrelac projects, it seems. That's beautiful! The earthtones look great.
