Entrelac, really?

Yes-I went to the dark side of entrelac. I never tried it until now because it looked like such a pain in the ass, but I actually like doing it. The pattern is really addicting with all of these colors to play with. They are leftover scraps of wool, this is going to be a felted pillow. At the store people asked for an entrelac class so I thought a felted project would be good so all of the mistakes disappear. My kinda project. Bruce enjoys the pillow too, he doesn't care if the project is finished. I wish everyone felt that way. I have a surprise coming for you as soon as I get a picture for proof of my new acheivement.

I like your colors! And, IMO, *all* entrelac should be fulled. I have not seen a non-fulled entrelac item that appeals to me, though I'm sure there's got to be one out there!

Entrelac is fun, isn't it? You really can get into a good rhythm with it and it goes fairly quickly.

Wow... Abby told me about your goal of 10 completed projects.
Holy cow! What an inspiration! Loved the Fiesta Mittens... I might even finish mine someday soon. I'll have to get them out of the BOTTOM of the basket! NJM
