WIP: Entrelac wrap
I'm back after a looong hiatus of a few months - I can't even remember the last time I posted, and I sure have missed y'all. I've been just a leeetle bit swamped, what with job hunting/interviewing/accepting/packing/moving out, all while working full-time on the road.

It ain't over yet, but I was jonesing to knit to calm my fretful nerves (see above). While I was travelin' f/NC and in LA, my very good friend V took me to a yarn store in Long Beach where I got the pattern below, designed by one of the store employees.

Nice variation of the Lady E! 12 inches down, 60 more to go. Thank goodness I'm enjoying the process. Thanks to a friendly person at the LYS, I learned entrelac AND backwards knitting. Now, does anyone know how to do backwards seed stitch??

Seriously.

Is that knit in garter stitch on some of the blocks, or moss st? It looks textured. The colors are great!

I am AGAIN reminded of why I love this forum - being able to present a work that y'all totally get. Love it!! Thank y'all!!

Details: (this is the only pattern EVER that I've knit and am going by the book - using the prescribed yarns, no mods to the pattern/size, etc.)

Yarns: Lamb's Pride Worsted, Prairie Fire, Noro Silk Garden "Reds"

Yes, the entrelac is done with the alternating seed stitch (k1p1, etc.) on one row of diamonds, and stockinette in the other.

I honestly canNOT wait to see how this looks finished - the sample in the store totally sold me. And this has me also searching out other yarns/colorways that would be much softer next to the skin (helloooo alpaca/silk) - maybe in a teal next time??
