During this difficult time I am of course finding solace in knitting. Behold my first attempt at entrelac.
It’s a belated Christmas present for [Very, Very Famous Person]‘s personal hairdresser.
I love entrelac! It looks so complicated! I’ve used it for several baby blankets–it’s a good way to get through a big project with a short attention span.
I saw a pattern for entrelac socks once, which I’m still too intimidated to try. Some day.
Just when we think your greatest gift is wit and writing, you throw a curve ball! I wish I had a good friend who felt like knitting me a work of art. Oh well, I’m just thankful a dear friend from Paris stopped by one of the lovely sidewalk stalls and bought me a very nice scarf. It’s not handmade, but it is from Paris.
Happy New Year, you adoreable bundle of creativity!
I wish I knew how to knit sometimes. I mean, I enjoy crochet more, but there are things you just can’t crochet.
It’s gorgeous. I’m not the biggest fan of entrelac, but that’s an awesome scarf.
The more I see of your amazing knitting, the more I am convinced you need your astonishing present right away. Email me your address so I can send it to you.
Also call sometime to vent or whatevs. I have given both of my inlaws sponge baths, you know.
I also have an amazing new “getting help out of the System” secret imparted to me by a geriatric social worker (who was in her fifties, just like all the child psychiatrists I’ve ever seen).
I think it looks splendid.
I now feel so inadequate! I’ve been planning to learn to knit, I’ve purchased the yarn, the shiny pink needles, checked out an educational DVD from the library and then… nothing. I’m overwhelmed by the casting on and get no further… complete mental block.
