Finished Objects 2008 - #2

I'll be slowly adding in my finished objects as I go this year, so here's another addition: Quantified.

The pattern is "Quant", and it's my first piece on entrelac. I've been wanting to try it for years, and after Lettisia said how easy it was I thought "What the heck!" and cast on. The instructions are so easy to understand, so if you're thinking about it go right on ahead. I loved it.

I used a ball of Patons Merino Deluxe DK in cream that I threw into a pot of very strong tea with a few drops of blue food colouring for good measure. It knits up beautifully, except for a propensity to twist like a tropical cyclone.

All in all, I just love it!

So pretty. And I love that it's tea dyed - how cleaver.
