entrelac2

Friday, November 21, 2014

 Another book that I am sure you have seen floating around.  Entrelec2.  85 new stitch patterns.  ( New.  That always amazes me.)  With 25 original designs.  Rosemary Drysdale teaches in an easy to follow way with photos helping you with each technique.  Brilliant.
 The projects range from easy to experienced.
 I love this sweater.  There is something so unusual and interesting about it.  It would be cute worn with a cami under it in the summer, too.
 The patterns include not only sweaters and pillows, but also hats, scarves, baby booties and bags.
I love this pincushion cover for trying out basic entrelac.

The awesome people over at Sterling would like to give two of my readers a copy of Entrelac2.  If interested, please leave a comment before Tuesday, November 25, at 1pm EST and I'll have the random number generator choose a couple of names.

Have a wonderful weekend.
