Not your daughter's socks

Entrelac is fun.

Check this out.

An entrelac sock in progress. Trekking XXL color 108. Is this pretty or what? On top of that I convinced Velva to try the Magic Loop tecnique so she doesn't have to transfer the stitches from the last rectangle every row. It works like a charm. This is so much fun.

I am also swatching for this pattern from a Lana Grossa Filati magazine.

I am doing it in (gasp!) Lion Brand Cotton Ease. I really like the feel of the yarn and the fabric it knits up and I heard so many good things about it that I am willing to give it a try. I had a bad experience with Knit Picks' Main Line. (I won't even link to it. No more Knit Picks products for me.) I knitted a Central Park Hoodie with it and it pills terribly, so much that I would not wear it. I will knit another CPH some day with another yarn but now want a cable cardigan knockabout so will give this Filati one and Cotton Ease a try. We shall see.

But first, back to the sock. It's fun!
