Entrelac Scarf in Mille Colori

After the wonderful experience of the slouchy handwarmers in Mille Colori I wanted to try an entrelac Scarf. The anticipation paid off. The results are stunning! I purchased three balls, but will probably increaseit to four or five for an extra long lucious scarf. It is stunning! The pattern is written up and will be used in an entrelac class coming soon to Kniterary. Then it will be available for sale at Kniterary and on-line in Ravelry (I am going to figure out how making patterns available directly on Ravelry works). This may not be the best pattern to try it out on, since there are tons of entrelace scarf patterns, but it will be useful as an experiment.

Just look at how it shows off the colours!

I feel some entrelac handwarmers to complement the entrelac scarf coming on.

Some Stitching and catching up on some photos

I recently went to a wedding shower dinner, theme personal. I thought I would try my hand at a nice little monogrammed sachet. A few letters, bullion roses and my first attempt at hem stitch. It worked out quite nicely.

And a photo of Madison's socks on Madison's feet. Next weekend I should have a photo with her whole outfit. I really hope they fit for a while, you never know for growing young ladies.

And since these photos were in the same location, I will share the entrelac market bag (from XRX) and a "teacup cozy" (still need some experimenting). Forgot to get a photo of the felted items before I gave them away. Am going to make a felted mitred bag next from the yarn that never ends. Will take photo of that.

And, in progress, and entrelac scarf for a class at Kniterary. I am soooo loving entrelac and mille colouri. It is just stunning! Photo next week.
