Current WIP: Garterlac Dishcloth

I like the way that entrelac looks, but long instructions scare me. (As does this guy, who's wearing an entrelac scarf.) But since the Magic Loop experiment turned out OK, I decided to test the waters. Freshly armed with a pound of variegated cotton (approximately 840 yards...whoa) I cast on for the dishcloth about an hour ago. So far:

I don't think that I'll ever knit an entrelac shawl or blanket, but I may tackle a scarf at some point. The technique isn't actually super-difficult, just time-consuming and a little fussy. (Basically it's short rows and picking up stitches.) FO pics hopefully within a few days, and then I'll stow the cotton for a while and get back to my CPH.
