I've been getting several orders lately for the yarn, Wisdom Limerick in colorway 31801. There is a beautiful pattern in the Winter Issue of Knit Simple magazine for an entrelac throw done with this particular yarn. There is also a very similar wrap knitted with the same yarn in the Wisdom Colors Collection pattern book, which was also featured recently at Stitches.
I started saying to myself, "Hmmm, maybe I should give entrelac another try." I took a class last year which was a lot of fun. I did well during the class, then went home and couldn't get it right. Frustration ensued, and I found myself shelving this project.
After seeing these new patterns, I'm giving it another try. I started the first row of triangles and after a few, I'm completing a triangle without looking at the pattern. I have three more to complete tonight, then on to the part that gave me a fit before. The pictures in Knit Simple are very good and I found a youtube video by Eunny Jang which is really good. I'll keep posting my progress.
Feel free to join me in this project. I'd love to hear how you're coming along with this.
