Knitting Here And There

With my BSJ off the needles I needed a new challenge. I decided that challenge would be to learn how to knit entrelac.  I found a few tutorials online and I decided to give it a go.  After a few fits and starts I finally got it going.  It's not very difficult, it's just that some of my picked up stitches were a little wonky, so I'll have to work on that part.  Here is my first entrelac swatch.


I plan to knit the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole later in the summer. I borrowed "Scarf Style" from the library and it has the pattern so now all I need is the right yarn in the right quantity.  I'll keep my eye out for a good Noro sale.  In the meantime, maybe I'll get some more entrelac practice in by making a Quant headband from knitty.com.

While I practice my entrelac, I am also making a simple Green Market Bag, which I cast on today. I should have started this project sooner so I'd be ready for my first CSA pickup this coming Tuesday.  I am pretty excited to see what kinds of delicious fresh vegetables we'll get each week.  I plan to post photos of my weekly veggie haul and the culinary creations that result from them. Hopefully they will be blog-worthy.

Looking good! I made a Lady Eleanor a while back and it is still a big compliment-getter when I wear her out! It's on my Ravelry projects if you want to check it out. I'm 'paperstarfish' on Ravelry! http://www.paperstarfish.prettyposies.com

Entrelac is currently beyond my knitting abilities but your little swatch looks so cute! I may just have to give it a go this summer.

It looks very pretty! I love the Lady Eleanor Stole but I'm a little scared to try entrelac.

so pretty! That's something I've never tried before. It's going on my To-Do list. I like the yarn too!

I've only done one entrelac project, a headband from Knitty - I'm spacing on the pattern name though :)
