Some Autumn Entrelac?


This is the beginning of a scarf from some yarn I spun maybe a year and a half ago. It's softer to the touch than it looks. Blue-faced Leicester. I can't decide if I like this enough to go forward with it. But I don't dislike enough to stop and frog. Oh me, oh my.


This is an experiment: making one oversized entrelac motif down a scarf. It's Rowan Tapestry, which I recycled from a sideways-knit scarf that really never made me happy. I'm not sure this is working for me, either.

I've got to get out of my cave more. Look what's right out my back door:


And this is out front:

Oh, I kinda love the oversized entrelac! What a nifty idea! And the handspun is pretty too, but if it's not grabbing you...

I love the wheaty thing!

Ha ha, I remember when you didn't do entrelac--and now we get a twopher!

The colors of the handspun are amazing. Are they enough to keep you going?

Hmmm, entrelac convert? I like the handspun one - the colors are so nice.

The second scarf does it for me. I wish I'd thought of it.

I love autumn colors so the 1st I liked as soon as I saw it. The I saw the 2nd pic and fell in love with the look, both color and texture from the oversized entrelac. I hope you finish both, I'd love to see the finished project.

The colors in the 2nd garden photo have an incredibly beautiful blue hue.

I love the oversized entrelac in the grays. Very elegant.
