Enterlac is so easy!

Why didn't I do this before???

Why isn't everyone doing it???

You should try it, it's addictive!

This is knitting up so fast! I can hardly belive it, and I still have to block it out too! I have just attached the third cake of SWS wound from the "CONE" lol and I will have to wind off some more today I think.

Check out my progress on the shawl...... with my phone again for reference!

I have had a few people ask me to teach them how to do enterlac..... and I have to agree with sheepkeeper, just read the instructions. I tried the Quant first, and it all was clear after the first set of diamonds. Now granted I know that instructions can be written in a way that is confusing, but I have to say that I trusted the Quant directions to teach me enterlac, and even though I reallllllly had doubts that it would work, they did.

Optomistically I think that I will be done before my Mother's birthday. However, as I am on a roll, it makes me want to get it done before I work on any of the other WIP's! To make sure that it is done on time. So even thought I have been thinking about stopping to work out the heel on the socks for Carina, I sort of hesitate. Have a great weekend gang! Enjoy the sun (well, I will here in BC)

And it was just last night that I was reading my knitting "how-to" book, wishing I could do something like this...I love the woven effect, it's lovely :)

(I'm just a beginner, kinda dabbling in knitting right now---but so far it's MUCH better than crochet if you ask me!)
