an entrelac spring

Pattern: my own, similar to this one
Needles: US 9 bamboo
Yarn: Patons SWS, Soy Wool Stripes, (the yarn was a present from the family secret santa)
Notions: Bamboo Circular handles from G-Street
Notes: The colors on these photos are pretty accurate. I followed the pattern out of an old knitting guide, but there's a great Entrelac tutorial in the spring Interweave Knits written by Eunny Jang
the other side!I started this bag, the day that EmEm was diagnosed with cancer. It'll be 5 weeks tomorrow.

That bag is lovely! I've decided that I am in love with entrelac. (That and 1x1 twisted rib. So crisp looking.)

It's gorgeous! The colours are stunning.

So sorry about EmEm. Hope the medications she is on is working.

I'm so very sorry for EmEm, but then again, what a relief it must be for you that the meds are working for the time being. All the very, very best to your beautiful doggie!
And gosh, I absolutely adore your bag, it's so gorgeous! Entrelac is something that I so love to look at, but never found the courage yet to actually cast on for an entrelac project - your bag has certainly inspired me to do so soon! Fabulous work!
