Progress continues on Kille's Brother Alpha's entrelac Christmas stocking. It has been an interesting journey - first I taught myself how to do entrelac about 11 years ago to do this stocking. This spring, I took an entrelac class with DD I thought to teach her how to do something new. As things turn out, I think there was a deeper reason - I needed to know more about it to finish my Entrelac stocking design successfully.
I had one of those "the light turned on" moments Tuesday night while knitting on this stocking. It finally hit me how one inserts a heel in an entrelac stocking. I simply made end triangles, followed by the waste yarn where I intend to insert the heel, followed by beginning triangles to finish the rectangle that would normally have gone in that spot. Then I continued circular entrelac.
Next up, toe decreases, after thought heel and applied I-cord edging and hanging loop. I am working in green in those areas....
