I'm working on a basic sweater right now. I've made this pattern as a pullover, but now I think I'm going to try to convert it into a cardigan. Anyway, here's the beginning of one of the sleeves.
And The Girl wants to learn to do entrelac. I had never done it before, but I remembered seeing this pattern on Knitty. So I made myself a little swatch. Entrelac is actually pretty fun; it's like a knitting puzzle. I couldn't imagine it by just reading, so I grabbed some junk yarn and saw it come together before my own eyes.

18 days, 21hours...and you haven't had to pack your knitting?

That is one pattern that I have printed out to knit this year. Do you comment on knitty?

Debey -- We decided to "tough it out" in the US instead of here, so we're not having our household goods picked up until a week before we leave. But don't worry, there will be plenty of knitting in my suitcase
DKS -- I have never commented on Knitty, but I check in with them all the time. I'm too big of a wuss to make my own patterns; adapting a pullover to a cardigan is a Big Deal for an anal person like me who follows patterns to the letter.

I love that gray--and to think that I pay $50-$60 for a great chunky knit sweater and you can make your own. Nice

Entrelac is pretty cool. However, I think I need to master cable-knit first. I'll get there one day.

ooh I dig the entrelac, one of those things I love how it looks but just haven't gotten 'round to trying it yet!
