As of today, I have a new knitting trick up my sleeve: Entrelac.
I used the center part of this pattern to try my hand. I really like it. I knit this bit with some of my own handspun, as I wanted to see the effect with the color changes. Very very cool.
New thing #2:
My local yarn shop got in their shipment of Noro sock yarn. Katie and I went down to the shop and did a fair amount of drooling. I’ve admired Noro colors for a very long time, but this is a big day because it marks my First Ever Noro Purchase. (insert party noises) I love the vibrant colors. I’m looking forward to testing this, too, as I’ve heard dramatically opposing reviews. It’s very rough, but I’ve heard it softens with use. If not, these socks may be used for disciplinary purposes…”NO NO! Not the socks, Mom! I promise I’ll keep my room clean just DON’T MAKE ME WEAR THE NORO SOCKS!”
