Entrelac Scarf

I've been waiting to cast this scarf on for some time now. I knew I needed to finish the cute newsboy hats before I left to visit my friends and go to the baby shower last week, so the three skeins of Noro Silk Garden had been sitting patiently in their tissue paper cacoon until it was time to put them to use. I used the Knitting Daily tutorial to make sense of the written instructions, and entrelac has proved to honestly be a very simple technique with a very complicated look. I'm on the second skein already, so may order a fourth for more versatile wearing options. Overal, this is a quick and fun project, and I've received compliments and questions from everyone who's seen it so far. I'm very excited by texture these days, so it's been fun to experiment with fibers and patterns that spice up the everday.

Ooh, gorgeous! I can't wait to see the finished product.

After reading your last post about the Serenity Blanket and multi-tasking, I have to admit you're right. I'm working on a ton of knitting for the holidays and baby showers, etc. I've got three separate projects on the needles and sadly, I don't seem to be making much progress on any of them. I've concentrated on one for a couple of days now and I'm finally getting somewhere! Thanks. :)

I had never seen this before -- reading some of the instructions it seems totally intimidating, but I love the look and I think I might put this on my project list for post-semester!

@ That Girl...I've NEVER been very good at visualizing instructions. If you look at the first post I did on this scarf (Locked and Loaded) it has the video tutorial from Knitting Daily, and it's the ONLY way I felt like i could really do this. If you just cast on and go, it makes sense, but I couldn't visualize how it would work.
