Then, through the magic of Twitter, I saw @sweatshopoflove's The Loop Entrelac Top. What an adorable summer sweater! I queued it when it went on Ravelry. And there it sat for a year, a whole year!

Just so you know, Entrelac is basically just knit stitches, purl stitches, knit 2 together, purl 2 together and picking up stitches....really easy stuff!
So, despite a busy summer, waaay too many projects on my needles, and a lingering fear of this new technique, I finally cast on The Loop Entrelac Tank Top last week. As of right now, I am almost done with both Entrelac straps! I should be onto the main stockinette sections tonight! And, PS, since this sweater is for my daughter, I made the straps a little short and put them on stitch holders so I could get a perfect length for her. Actually, I'm hoping I have a few more sections of Entrelac to knit!
