have never done Entrelac and wonder about the mystery on how those tiny squares and triangles occur. Well, the best way to see if you ever want to knit it more than once, may I suggest to you knit one of these!

It was fun! Easy to follow pattern and knit. Each time I did either a triangle or square and it came together, I did a tiny dance ;) I'll be helping to teach this to our Knitting Guild in the near future...er..which could be this Saturday!
Whomever invented this method...style...whatever you call it of knitting is just amazing.
Now yes, I know this is garter stitch and the project I want is knit in stockinette, but is was just the technique I wanted to learn. You know, see how it all happens. The pattern may be a bit different, I don't know, haven't read it yet. Not worried..um..er...yet anyways!
What started this 2 year pondering...wondering...quest....vision...
Back to SAFF 2007....When I (and Shannon too!) saw Oliviaknits Lady Eleanor Stole. Speaking for myself, I was in awe. I had never seen anything in person like that before and it looked lovely and warm and, well heck I loved it and thought, I could never do that.
Onward to SAFF 2008...In person I get to see, fondle, drool, pet, and wish she would forget it in my luggage, Shannon's fabulous Lady E! I was hooked, and it didn't help that Cristi had been working on hers too! (Which I saw recently in person!! Lovely as well!)
So what did I do shortly after returning home from SAFF 2008...er...
Get my own Noro Silk Garden in 221. I've seen it knit up and just love all the colors.
So...will there be a 2009 sighting of a Lady E at SAFF....who knows, but I'd sure like to!
