Just in case you were not significantly challenged with yesterday's post on Moebius knitting, today I have yet another method of knitting called Entrelac for you to try.
Another of my Craft buddy friends has recently mastered this technique, and after watching the video, I must say I applause her determination - for this one seems very complicated to me. She will be teaching this technique at her local Yarn Barn in October... WTG, Monica... wish I lived nearer to you, I'd be there.
Entrelac is a method of knitting that makes the finished product look like woven triangles. Monica completed a beautiful baby quilt using this method, and I can only be in awe of the finished project.
So how is it done? Here are some videos that explain the technique. To tell the truth, I was lost very quickly but totally amazed at the speed in which this gal knits. Wow - I always thought I was pretty fast, but I am poky in comparison...
Check this out...
The possibilities for this method of knitting are endless.
This is changing the topic a bit, but this past weekend I missed an opportunity to meet one of my readers in person. Esther lives in the same province as I do, but we have never met. She happened upon my blog when someone she knew mentioned I was writing about an Amish settlement in Manitoba. Esther is a quilter, and has written a book about 3D quilting. She had a book signing this past weekend at a Grand Opening of a local fabric shop here in Winnipeg. I had intended to go to her event, mainly to be able to meet her, but also to check out her book and the new shop. Regretfully, I was under the weather and couldn't make it. Esther, I so wanted to meet you, and hear about your book. I hope the signing was a huge success and I wish you much success. Hopefully we will yet get a chance to meet each other one day soon.
Esther has a website, please take a moment to check out her work.
