Mom has a new project going. She's knitting a handbag!
She's done entrelac before but it's been awhile. It's tricky getting started but once you get going on it, it's really fun.
The directions sound confusing but if you follow them step-by-step, it's easy and you'll surprise yourself how simple it really is.
The wool that she is using is called Noro Kureyon. It natually stripes itself as she knits, which makes it easy peasy. This is 2 completed rows.
This is how the pattern reads if anyone thinks they might want to give it a try. It's really fun and it's pretty as the finished piece grows longer.
Mom finished this handbag a few years ago. It's knit with the Noro wool too but a different color combo. When the handbag that she is working on is finished, it gets tossed in the washing machine and the wool felts and this is how it turns out.
You're supposed to be a happy model, Maggie. Let's see that smile, girlfren!
We'll post again when mom is further along so you can see how her entrelac purse is coming along.
