I used Noro Kureon self striping yarn. The scarf was my first try at doing entrelac. I think it's good to try a new technique like this with something flat- such as a scarf. Now I have the confidence to do an entrelac handbag or socks. For those of you who might not be familiar with entrelac, it's knitting squares in a "criss cross" fashion. You don't do any sewing- you pick up stitches along the sides of the squares with your knitting needle. I had a heck of a time with this at first, but eventually the light bulb lit and I figured it out.
I have a few other knitting UFO's... I'm resolving to finish lots of UFO's this year- both knitting and sewing. I'm blocking another project now- I'll show it to you when it's dry.
