Anyone want to join me in knitting Quant from knitty.com's winter '07 issue? I'd love to see all the colors.

I'm in!  I started on mine this evening and was just going to start a kal for it if there wasn't one yet Smiley
This is my first attempt at entrelac and the pattern seems to make sense so far...
I'm using Freedom Spirit in color 512 (Aura)
here is a progress shot...


I can't get a shot with the real color so here is what it looks like Smiley

I'm soooo bad for that... I keep meaning to work on my Christmas knitting but can't seem to make myself do it... and I keep finding all these lovely new projects to procrastinate with  Tongue
Plus I got a new jacket and it totally doesn't go with any of my scarves or hats...

Yeah, usually I'm pretty bad about that too... I kept finding other things to do that were more fun than what I was supposed to be doing but I'm making my b/f a pair of socks (100% merino) and I really want to get them done... then I promised his Mom a crocheted afghan and I'm still about 8 panels away from that being done  Shocked So....

But I really do like quant... and I love the yarn you're using!!! Cheesy Now I have to go back to the yarn store to look for some nice self striping yarn for this Cheesy

Jadzy, I just noticed that you're using Harmony needles... how are those to work with?

Jadzy, I love that yarn! It looks great so far. I'm also interested in your review of the harmony needles.

I'm loving the harmony needles!  The cord is very flexible and doesn't try to unscrew itself very often (tho I admit I don't use the little key thing to tighten them). The tips are slippery enough but my work doesn't try to go flying off of them.  They are very nice to look at Tongue 
I bought 2 tips and 2 cords a couple months ago just to see if I liked them... and I did, so I splurged and bought the set Smiley  SOooooo much better than my Boye set, which I loved until I tried these.
The metal/wood join is smooth and I don't notice any snagging.
All in all I think they are great Smiley
I've only had a problem with one of the tips and they are already sending me a replacement.
