And then there were two


Another pair finished. I got to the gusset Sunday at the Harlot and managed to nearly finish the toe Tuesday during a surprisingly long meetup with some local knitters at the Caribou Coffee in Dearborn- I didn't get home until nearly 11:00 (and arrived at 6:30!!) The drive home was interesting. There was power were we were knitting, but once I drove about a block or two in the direction of home there wasn't, and it was dark most of the way home. Lots of four-way stopping at intersections with lights out, which I don't enjoy. The knitting (and company) was great though- I should be able to go most weeks, and unlike the other two meetups during the week, it's actually on a night I can go AND not super far from my house. Yay!

I got yarn for the Top Secret project for SWTC yesterday, and I'm plugging away at the other sweater in their new Gianna yarn. I also cast on for a Chic Knits Bucket Hat in some of my Cotton Ease stash, and a new pair of STR for a second pair of Jaywalkers. And lest you think I don't buy much yarn anymore (though I am trying to use what I have) I did spend the Knitty honorarium I just got on a whole bag of Silk Garden- probably for a Lady Eleanor (since I love entrelac).

Oh the socks are so cute!!

What a great way to spend the honorarium - Noro is so fun! and I love the Lady Eleanor. I finally got that book, and that pattern is just stunning! ;) What colorway did you get?

It was waiting for me today when Emma and I got home from Costco and the library! Colorway is 205 (purples/magenta)- and it's even prettier than it looked on the computer! I noticed Webs has some Silk Garden colors on clearance- I was tempted to buy more. (I got mine on ebay, at a good price too!)

Wow you're fast! Have you done etralac before? I did a swatch but I have questions. Glad you found my blog and glad you could make it to knitting on Tues!

Amy said...

I'm planning to come next week too-I have done entrelac before. At first it was just a few swatches to convince myself it's actually easy. My first "real" entrelac project was (believe it or not) published in last May's Creative Knitting magazine.
