I needed a new project for the needles, and PDXKnitterati came along with the perfect KAL at just the right time!
I’ve wanted to try entrelac pretty much since I started knitting. Why I haven’t until now is beyond me. But as soon as she posted about the Minerva KAL, I knew it was time.
I didn’t really have any gradients in the stash, but I did have a lot of Mom’s handspun efforts… since they tend to knit up stripey, I wondered if they would work. I ran the idea by Mom and she said they should be perfect for entrelac.
She was not wrong! It almost looks like I’ve knit with a different yarn on each one of those little squares!
The pattenr calls for Worsted, but Mom likes to spin thin, so I had to adjust a little. This skein is about a sport weight, so I added a few extra beginning triangles on and so far, it seems to be just the right size. I’ve got about 315 yards, so hopefully its enough to make a decent-sized cowl. If I do, it will likely end up in the Christmas box.
