I think I’m in love with entrelac.

Go on. Ask me a question.
Expect cats, atheism, wine, feminism, coffee, knitting, baking, movies, and random outbursts of fangirling.
Settled on the Grey Gardens entrelac turban for my Manos del Uruguay. It is my first entrelac and I have no clue what I’m doing and I’m kind of terrified.
I still have almost a full skein of Manos del Uruguay’s Maxima in Currant (I used the other skein and part of this one to knit Stephen West’s Purl Ridge Scarf and I seriously had to start the new skein on the LAST ROW) and I can’t find a pattern that I wanna knit with it. Nothing is worthy/I don’t think it will look good with kettle-dyed yarn.
I need some yarn therapy.
Someone who knits in the NY area become friends with me so we can go to Vogue Knitting Live in NYC this january.
It was a dishcloth/pot holder thingy, so it seriously only took a day.
My mother taught me how to cast on (I don’t remember what kind of cast on it was, but it definitely wasn’t long tail) and the knit stitch. That’s all she knew how to do, since she’s only ever crocheted. I stopped for about two years, and decided to start up again when I was living in Ben’s parents’ basement with nothing to do. I relearned the knit stitch with help from my mom, and then I struggled with learning to purl with the help of some books. The day before I went to my first (and only, I am really awkward) stitch n bitch, I finally got it down. They taught me a lot of neat tricks, such long tail cast on and how to knit with circulars.
I am currently also knitting Earl Grey Socks for my boyfriend, Ben. It is a lovely pattern.
I think I’m going to have to knit something other than socks after this.
