New entrelac joins for entrelac cube

Trying out different ways to join the squares in an entrelac cube. This came out OK... I was trying to avoid the distorted stitches that come about when you slip the first stitch of each row.

This cube uses sliding-loop joins instead of decreases to join selvedges to raw stitches.

To pick up stitches from selvedges, I had to figure out how to find the thread between the last stitch of one row and the first stitch of the next.This is not trivial, since the edge stitches become the infamous knots-and-looseness. Through experimentation, looking at the knitting, putting it down in disgust and returning to it hours later, I have become somewhat adept at scooping out that particular bight of yarn.
