Addicted!!!

I've found an addiction folks!

Knitting is a VERY slow process for me, especially when its something new or complicated....so I am still questioning what was in my mind when I decided to combine both new and complicated in the form of a simplified Enterlac project! *gulp* Yup, I said Entrelac which is a scary four letter world in my rather basic beginner level knitting realm.

I started this: Garterlac Dishcloth last night and as of 2 minutes ago I had started layer 5 of 7! Wow! I have never been so compelled to keep knitting than I have with this project!

It is a fascinating project that seems a bit weird when you start it (and a bit downright scary!) but if you stick with it and do exactly as the directions say without any right or left brain inputs, you will be amazed to watch it turn from three wonky little triangles into an awesome dishcloth! I kept knitting on it last night just to see what it was going to look like next!

I'd like to thank Deneen for pointing this pattern out, and Lani for giving me hope that I might be able to actually do it after seeing hers!

Okay, back to knitting!!

Go Kimberly Go! Isn't it a fun knit, seriously? Not easy-fun like the ballband dishcloth is, but scratching-your-head, what's-gonna-happen-next, omigodlookatthat fun. I did mine, literally, in less than a day -- not because I'm a fast knitter, but because I was totally obsessed with it. Can't wait to see yours (and to do another one myself!).
