Entrelac scarf is going along swimmingly!

My first attempt was way too wide, so I frogged and restarted it, and now it's just perfect. It's really not a hard technique, once you get the hang of it - at this point, the hardest, most annoying thing is having to join in a different color every tier :P

I'm seriously in love with it, knitting entrelac is extremely enjoyable.

More gloves, and headbands

It's really chilly here, so I recently made a pair of my v-stitch gloves for myself.

The cuff is knit instead of crocheted.

I also whipped up a couple of simple crocheted headbands today.

I keep making these kinds of headbands in all kinds of colors. They're so quick and easy to make, but so cute.

A hat, and the beginnings of a scarf

I've been meaning to make an interesting-looking beanie-like hat for a while now, and when I saw this pattern I knew this would be it.

I made my ribbed brim about an inch or so shorter than the pattern said, so I could wear it unfolded as a slouchy hat without it being too long.

I was also commissioned by a friend to knit an entrelac scarf, and I spent this morning playing around with it.

I've never knitted entrelac before, and I'm surprised at how fast it works. After the first couple of tiers everything gets a lot less confusing, the pattern is easy to remember, and it generally turns into an incredibly fun project! I'm really excited about this one.

(Also, knitting with merino will never not be a delight.)
