4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Entrelac yarns - do some work better than others? on: January 16, 2009 06:53:09 AM
I've done entrelac before, usually with Lamb's Pride (worsted bulky). It kept it's shape nicely and was stiff without being scratchy.

But has anyone tried to use thinner-weight yarns for entrelac? Do your projects have the same...oomph? I have a project in mind for an entrelac scarf using some of my stash, but I don't want to invest the time in such a complicated pattern only to have it come out looking like a wet noodle.

If you have used different yarns with success, which ones? Thanks!

Thanks all!

**SPOILER ALERT for anyone that hasn't seen but wants to see 30 Rock**

The show is hysterically funny, truly. In the scene I've quoted, Liz Lemon's character has her spirits dashed when she hires her hero - a female writer from a 60s era variety show. Turns out the writer is a total drunk and lives in squalor, something Liz figures out only after her hero convinces her to quit her job. Liz goes crawling back to her boss, Jack, to ask for her job back. She tells him that she's sorry and that this writer's home was horrible. Jack says, "Never go with a hippie to the second location." It's a play on the advice that you never go with a kidnapper to the second location.

I am laughing so hard at my walls right now.

Over winter break, I created some cross stitch patterns based on my favorite quotes. The first two I stitched up were my favorite quote from 30 Rock:

And my favorite quote from "The Jerk":

both my boyfriend and I seriously laugh every time I pass this wall in my house, so mission accomplished!
