I've been knitting face washers as Christmas gifts--I'm working on the 12 days of Christmas principle, which means I have until January 6 to complete my gift-making. At first I appreciated the simplicity of the garter stitch squares, but after making several I was well and truly over it. So it was time to try something new. I'm still using the bamboo-soy yarn and aiming at a small square, so the adventure is nicely contained. If it works out, there'll be a maverick face washer amongst the group.

New Year, New Knitting
What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new year than with a new style of knitting. My knitting adventure for New Year's Day was to start to explore entrelac. Here's where I'm up to:I found entrelac in the last chapter of my knitting encyclopedia. I've looked at it before and been put off by the apparent complexity. But yesterday I had time to attempt it with no demands and no looming deadlines.
