It has been a while since my last post. Since then I have driven to the DC are, flown across the Atlantic, and stayed at numerous places in Ireland (more detail here). All this travel has kept me busy, but airplane, train and bus rides are excellent opportunities to knit.
Carolus Rib Entrelac Scarf by Andrea Krüß-Anders I found on Ravelry. I loved the different shape of the blocks forming each row, and I wanted to make the shape more obvious. I also wanted a multi colored scarf. After some figuring, I discovered that entrelac lends itself to a three ball rotation. I debated using 6 balls, three of each color, in order to create a two-color scarf. I didn't like that idea as much as using three colors. I pulled two colors from my stash and purchased a third color of the same yarn. I love the way it is turning out. As my first entrelac project, I am surprised at how quickly it grows and how easy it is once you have the rhythm. Frequently, I will find myself staying at it for 'just one more block' realizing it only when I reach the end of the row.
