Entralac and a Lonely Ball of Yarn
As promised, I've got some more pictures today. (Not the sweater yet, sorry) But I do have some pics to show off my entralac scarf I'm working on. The yarn is Inca Alpaca (100% Alpaca, color 1194) and this is my very first go at entralac! I found out last night that I was doing my M1's wrong. I wasn't lifting the bar up onto the left needle and knitting it, I was just going through the bar and adding a stitch. So as a result, my left side triangles aren't as smooth as my right hand ones. But I really don't care! I love the way this looks! Here's a pic of the pattern up close: Pretty cool huh? And alas, my lonely ball of yarn. This is a 94yd ball of Classic Elite Yarns "Gatsby" in color #2132. I saved it from my LYS as it was the last one left and had been discontinued. So now I have to figure out what to do with it? A scarf seems to be the easy answer, but I think this yarn has something more special than a scarf in it. Suggestions?
