Don't tell grams, hopefully I can drag him along to Steve's for little Mark's birthday party and surprise them all with my handsome youngest son. (yep the eyebrows are a bit of a shock)
From my lovely pal in the Scarf Exchange7 I received a ball of very soft alpaca in "spring" colours, which of course are some of my favourite colours too. After some swatching, I think Entrelac is the way to go, so I present the first wrist warmer, 32 sts, size 4.5mm needles for softness. The short colour changes looked truly awful in rib, and really plain stocking stitch would just look spotty. We shall see when finished, but the tiny squares of entrelac should look pretty good with the quick colour changes.
