Afghan Update

I thought I'd update you on some behind the scenes knitting, this is my movie watch project, the DH is an avid movie watcher and rents movies at least 3 times a week so when I'm interested in a movie this is what I work on while I watch, aka the stash buster afghan. It's 32" wide and so far only 21" long at this rate it will take me right up until Christmas before it's finished and just in time to gift it to my mom.

I'm not working the yarn in any particular order just trying to get some color in some sort of sequences which it might give the piece a cohesive look I don't know if I'm accomplishing that but I'm into the 15th color and not a repeat yet.

It's lovely! I think enterlac is really attractive. Is it as hard as it looks?


Are you kidding? After the wonderful sweater your knitting, nah this stuff's elementary. hehe.

It really is easy once you get the concept of how it works, then you just chug along. I've been asked to do a tutorial and directions for it, I will work on it this weekend and see if I can get it posted for everyone.

Deep end, may I please borrow the photo of your interlac to post on my blog? I can't get over it. I want to touch it, feel it, have it near me. The colors are wonderful, too!!


Sure Meg, you can have the photo, I've been working on it every evening as I'm not talking to my loom and she in timeout for now. I'm glad you like the colors since most are vintage acrylic I inherited I though ugh what am I ever going to do with this stuff. Well now I have an answer. No yarn should ever go unloved, LOL..

That's right. And the beauty/ugliness are in the eyes of the weaver/knitter. I learned that when I did my color course in 2000, and since then, I really can't throw away ANY yarn!
