however, i promised myself i wouldn’t cast on for lady eleanor until both of my papers (one due next week, one the week after) were at least well underway, and my assignments due this week were finished.
i finished the stuff due this week, but haven’t thought about my papers.
anyhow, my next goal is to not start a second skein* of noro until the papers are well underway. this is what i’ve got with one skein of noro silk garden on #8s
(somehow my colors indoors are truer under my reveal lightbulb than in direct sunlight or with ambient natural light. go figure.)
here’s the yarny texture artsy shot
love the colorway (206) i actually like this yarn – it has lovers and haters, very few people fall between the cracks. the varying width, the schizo color joins, finding small shrubs within the yarn itself – i rather like it. it’s insanely well suited to this pattern.
speaking of this pattern, entrelac has taught me something very important – learning how to knit and purl left to right so you don’t have to turn the damn thing every 8 stitches. not only that, but i can knit english style lefty. if only i could do it righty, and hopefully be less afeard of fair isle knitting….
*i have to call them skeins. i am a 12 year old boy who laughed at this title.
