That’s pretty much it. LOL. I’ve been working on nothing else BUT my Lady Eleanor and it’s coming along quite nicely. I’m well into the third ball and it’s gorgeous. In fact, I’m already making plans for a scarf version. And maybe a purse.

As a bit of a treat, here’s a comic a friend of mine forwarded. Click on the image for a full-sized view…

This picture was taken when I was about 1 1/2 balls into my Lady Eleanor. I’m LOVING this pattern, and the colors are gorgeous and perfect. I’ve just started my third ball of Noro. I’ll have to take some more pictures this weekend in the sun, because here the colors are off. 

Isn’t she pretty? Or am I just biased? LOL.

And in the meantime, I also FINALLY casting on my Amazing Lace project. About time, too. LOL. I’m 8 rows into a 10 row repeat and I can’t see the pattern. LOL. I’m sure it’s because I haven’t gone far enough in yet, and also that it’s not blocked, but still…now I’m wondering if I’m doing it right. I’ll probably take it to class tomorrow if I can get my tired butt up in the morning.

I know. I know. I am a bad knit blogger. Here I posted those dramatic pictures and the abridged version of the story and then disappeared. How rude of me! LOL.To be fair, between the new car (LOVE it), my co-worker being a Twinkie, and a number of large, involved projects at work as well as some family stuff, I have had NO time to post.One of the reasons I was dragging my feet just a bit was I had taken some new photos and wanted to post them, but I haven’t had a chance to resize and upload them. So this will have to just be picture free! Sorry!

What I’m working on…

I have a secret project I’m working on for a friend’s birthday. It was last week, so I’m late, but I was informed that if it is handmade, then it’s good for several “events.” So I’m taking her at her word. LOL.

I’m taking a 3-week class at A Mano Yarn on the Lady Eleanor wrap from the Scarf Style book. I’m using Noro’s Silk Garden in 226. I. Love. It. Entrelac is SOOOOO much simpler than it looks! Once I figured out what it was doing, that was it! I’m hooked! I’m about 1 1/2 skeins in and it looks AMAZING. Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I hadn’t started it and then ripped it back. LOL. I got about 1 skein in using a 10 needle and decided I thought it was too tight. So I cast on again using a 10.5 and am liking it a lot better.

Still working on a new pair of socks…

Still trying to perfect an iPod sock…

Still working on last year’s “Christmas” shawl…

And remind me next time to tell you all about the Alpaca farm in Oregon I went to.
