Entrelac and stream

When you are a seamstress or a knitter, you don’t have to have an accident in order to see your life pass before your eyes – just go through your scraps or get out your leftover yarn.Remembering the garments, making them, wearing them or watching them be worn, rejoicing, repenting, releasing.

I found a great tutorial for the entrelac stitch here :

I did this as a sample :

This is the beginning of my project :

I am thinking along the lines of a vest, but I’m not sure how this will evolve.

This is a funny stitch – it seems to take forever to do a row, but when I finally get across, it is more like I have done six rows.There is a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, no straight stretches to pick up speed.Not buying any new yarn makes it seem like a free sweater.This is not counting labor costs.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
