She's finished! I opted for tassels instead of a fringe in the end.

I think this is a project that won't be repeated in this format - maybe a smaller one!

I've finally finished knitting it - three minutes ago!

I have made it a lot longer than it should've been and only have a little yarn left so need to think about some sort of fringing.

I desperately wanted to get the knitting finished before I went to Kangaroo this morning but couldn't stay up anylonger tlast night!!

Just Joined

I joined this group in Ravelry, now I'm here, too - in the outside world. I adore entrelac. So I was very glad to find these groups!

This is the hat and scarf I made for my niece for Christmas. She's cute, isn't she. The scarf is 'regular' entrelac, and the hat is my own design.

I used Nashua Wooly Stripes in the lilac colorway (I think). Jasmine says the hat is nice and warm. I tend to knit outer wear at a smaller-than-recommended gauge to make the fabric a little more dense.
