To the Finals

Please beg my pardon, cheering reader, nona's been terribly rude to keep you in the dark.  My excuse?  Well, I've been caught up -- some may say self absorbed -- with my Rowing Out dilemma and with your many helpful suggestions and tips.  So caught up, that I forgot to mention the KnitOff 2007 results.  Unofficially I won my semi-final match against Marie, finishing a massive hunk of Entrelac -- which, by the way, I loved knitting -- Tuesday at high-noon.  The finals are set to begin Saturday, April 28.  I'll be facing the extremely speedy Michelle.  I'm going for it, my friends, going for it!

Who knew Entrelac was so fun to knit?

Go Nona! It's really pretty too. What yarn did you use for this one? How long did it take?

Good luck in the finals! I started my first entrelac project a few weeks ago and totally fell in love. I'm just so enthralled by the cleverness of the technique! It's also my first time working with self-striping yarn, which I totally love...Now I can't wait to start my Lady Eleanor Stole in Silk Garden (never used Noro either, so another first!) Now if only school would end so I could actually squeeze in some knitting time :-)
