Tips for Photographing Knits

Tip 1: don't photograph entrelac on top of a plaid blanket.

Oh well. I wanted to show this to you because the knitting has been so boring lately. The three projects OTN are all boring knitting, so I wanted to try something fun for a change. I love entrelac, but I'm hesitant about wearing an entire entrelac sweater. So, I started this scarf using a simple basic entrelac pattern and a nice summer yarn: Noro Furisode, a cotton/silk blend with a wee bit of wool. The colors are good for summer and probably into fall as well, and so far I like how it looks.

I don't know how Noro does it, but it is perfect for entrelac.

Juneau is not thriving--the protocol that was successful last time did not work, the shots to boost her white blood cell production did not work, and the new chemo treatment from yesterday landed her at the Emergency vet with an allergic reaction. We're about to go pick her up--she seems to have recovered completely--but our poor girl.

Ouch. yes, poor Juneau. It's good that she's recovered from the reaction. It seems like her body's still fighting. Keeping her on the list here.

Entrelak: It must be the length of the color repeats in Noro, maybe? Fun looking scarf.

Biggest, biggest hugs she can stand to Niece Juneau. (And a few for you and Tim, too.)
