i would like a rock to wind a piece of string around, please.

i am a knitting bandwagonner. i look at other people’s stuff and think: “hey! i wanna do that!”

like lady eleanor. jessica finished her eleanor and i was looking at her eleanor and other eleanors and thought: “hey! i wanna do that!” because in theory i’ll have a real job by next winter and think she’d be lovely over a white oxford shirt, black or grey dress pants, and grown up heels. in my mind i also do my hair and periodically wear makeup and jewelry. i’m also as dainty and goregous as jessica, but that’s another post.

but anyway, i bought 10 sk of noro silk garden in 206 from yarnbow on ebay and should have that in a few days.

also like rogue… there’ve been a few knit-alongs for her, but i just wanted to knit something out of the ex-mariah, ex-not a sweater yarn. this is what she looked like about an hour ago.

rogue WIP

i finished the back, and have since started the front cables.

here’s the puuuuurty side cable…well part of it.

rogue side cable detail

let it be said that i love this pattern and think it’s BRILLIANT. if i had done any forethought, however, i would have turned up the hem and knitted it to the body about 100 rows ago.

there’s a chance i should be working on homework.

  1. yarn is cool

  2. That eleanor is one damn fine scarf. I am going to have to make one of those someday.

  3. “Looking at her Eleanor” sounds like a euphemism. It’s also a good name for a band.

  4. it is a euphemism, chris.

    the question is, for what?
