Hello! I am Tracy, from London and am new to the blog. My plan is to knit the Lady Eleanor entrelac stole. I have never done entrelac before...so at this point I am teaching myself by swatching several yarns (to see which I might want to use)...I am considering Noro Kucheron and Debbie Bliss Maya. I am wanting long and gentle color transitions with mostly natural looking colors transitioning into a bright here and there. It seems that a lot of the Kureon colorways end up quite bright and patchy which is gorgeous but not quite the look I'm looking for. The Kucheron is a blend, the Maya is a 100% wool....boy they are both sooo pretty.
Questions for you entrelac pros:
1) do you all knit backwards?
2) did you wrap your short rows? (even backwards? LOL)
3) How long did it take you?
Here is a pic of the 'mess' on my needle last night (the mess everyone says is good!)...(it's the Maya)....
Hmm photo upload doesn't seem to be working. Check out my blog
for the photo.
