My favorite bookstore in Portland dressed up taxidermied animals in knits for their holiday window display. Charming or disturbing? I haven’t decided yet.

What I cast on Christmas Eve and knit over the holiday for relaxation…still deciding if I want to make it a full-scarf, or a collar or what.

I had help putting the tree away. If by “help,” you mean “complete and utter interference.”

Last stitch of 2006, or How I spent My New Year’s Eve.

    I’m lovin’ Shannon this week. I received a copy of Spin to Knit (wherein I will not learn to spin) and I’m watching you on Uncommon Threads at this very moment.

    Wow–I should have known that if anyone could make entrelac look gorgeous and un-fussy, it would be you.

    That should have said “wherein I will noW learn to spin)”.

    I haven’t seen a copy of Spin to Knit but sounds great. Please include me in your next exchange. I spin and knit.

    Wow, I love that Christmas cast-on – I never cared for entrelac – but those yarn colors are beautiful – is there details/pattern info?

    Hey entrelac fans — here’s the scarf pattern I was “following” (well, as much as I follow anything, anyway):


    The final row of triangles isn’t done because I haven’t decided what I want to do with it. The yarn is Noro Silk Garden, 2 different colorways which happen to share a lot of the same colors. I’ll have to hunt down the ball bands, but I think one of them is #247.

    Gorgeous entrelac! Are you knitting the 2 colors of Noro in rows, or in sections? Whatever you’re doing, it’s beautiful!

    Just wondering who the designer is of the knit angel gown. The only link to the picture takes me to this website. Thanks!

    Thanks, Amanda! I knit according to that pattern, more or less, until the yarn ran out. And then I switched to the second ball. Surprisingly, there are only 2-3 sections that are sharply divided, color-wise. The Noro seems to have sufficient length in each color section to do several sections.
