Coming up on the Planet Purl Party Line...

Entrelac with Rosemary Drysdale "Entrelac" with Rosemary Drysdale
Thursday, December 9th, 2010 at 12 p.m. (eastern)

We love Entrelac for the crazy quilt texture and endless color combinations. Not to mention it's so impressive, people will think you're a knitting genius! Little do they know it's an easy skill once you get the hang of it. Whether you already love Entrelac or have just admired it from afar, Rosemary Drysdale's new book Entrelac will inspire your creativity and de-mystify the technique. Join us on Thursday, December 9th when Rosemary visits live on the Party Line to talk about her book and answer your questions.
