What materials did you use? I am using Brown Sheep Lambs Pride in sport wt. I bought a ton of mill ends in grays and some bland light pinks. I then overdyed them without measuring anything. Once I wound them into balls i started putting them into color shades and then packed them away. Recently i wanted to use up some of my yarn and have a fairly mindless knitting project to work on. This is it.

What are you most proud of? Oh I think the colors are warm and wonderful to have on my lap as i work. I also got away from the pattern for a bit which was fun. You can see larger shapes. It turned into a heart by total accident and I only realised it from this photo!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Entrelac is really easy once you understand the simple idea. I learned to knit backwards to avoid turning the work from front to back for each row.

LOVE those colors. I love overdying, it gives so much new life to whatever kinda blah color it had been before. And they're working out beautifully in this project! The larger color blocks are cool, too, I don't think I would have thought to do that. :-)

You learned to knit backward? That is sssooo cool. Your work is lovely.

yeah. i don't know how to describe it. when you finish a row and the stitches are on the right needle, instead of turning the work over to the back and purling, the left needle goes into the back of the stitch on the right needle, the yarn goes around, and the new loop is now on the left needle.

I guess its like knitting left handed??

yeah you move from left to right, with new stitches going on to left needle.

I love the colors! Very nice work.

Very pretty. What kind of yarn, and where did you get the pattern from? How many stitches did you cast on?

07/26/2012 Flag

The yarn is Brown sheeps lambs pride mill ends that i overdyed with my own choices of colors.. the pattern is just the basic Entrelac pattern. I cast on 240 stitches.
