Walked into A Good Yarn Shop and found myself faced with a sample of this Autumn Shawl by Jojoland. It was like putting a leftover bowl of Halloween Butterfingers in front of me.
Ever since I took the entrelac class last summer, I haven't been able to shake the bug. It is a knitting addiction. Just one more little rectangle, I tell myself. I'll just finish this row. Then it becomes, I'll just finish this skein and see where the next one takes me.
I was right in the middle of this hat for a friend who is going through chemo for ovarian cancer, so I had a very good reason to get the hat done, but the allure of entrelac was too much and I cast on the moment I got home. After two of days of knitting like a madwoman, I bundled it all up, packed it under the bed and told myself I couldn't get it out until I finished the chemo cap. Voila! A finished hat.
Amazing how fast you can finish something when there is entrelac under the bed.
When the yarn starts to get a mind of its own, then it's time to knit the stash.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Elizabeth, and I've been knitting off and on since I was seven. I come from a long line of knitters, crocheters and quilters and love anything to do with fiber. Since I live in a house filled with male DNA, this is where I get to share my projects and notions.
