. Anyone want to join us?
I would love to! I wasn't impressed with the pattern when I originally saw it on Knitty, but the colors on the one shown on Spousebuzz convinced me! Now to find the yarn & get going...

Yeah, the original Danica is neat only in that it's entrelac, but with that SWS yarn...awesome. Check google images for a few pics using the different color choices.

Wow! I'd love to do that! Is there any way to translate that to crochet? I haven't expanded my horizons yet.

A search of "crochet entrelac" yielded this website:
It seems it's possible...though I'm not sure I'm up to the task of converting the pattern!

this looks way cool. I also found some info on knitting 'backwards', which apparently makes this pattern a bit less unwieldy? Do you guys do it that way? I wouldn't be able to start for another month or so, but would love to participate, too!

I love knitting backwards for rows with not-so-many stitches. There's a good tutorial at Knitty with vivid pictures: http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/FEATreverse.html

Thanks for the link, Sarah. I got some yarn out just to see if I could figure it out, and managed OK, which surprised/pleased me. Have you started already? I'm going to be tied up for at least another month, like I said. . . . bummer.
