In a glaring contrast to the last knitting magazine I picked up, it appears to be full of very lovely, feminine knits. The one that really calls out to me is the Cobweb Lace Stole. I've been wanting to try a larger lace project for some time, yet my
In the meanwhile, I'm busy, busy, busy. After almost 2 years of stashing the yarn, I've finally cast on for Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style. I'm finding entrelac knitting to be very addictive... and I especially love the fact that when I first got the book a couple of years ago, I admired this wrap with hopes of someday being able to attempt something like it. It's nice to see some progress in some area of my life. To offset the slight coarseness of the Noro, I've also started a beret with some Malabrigo. I have no idea if I can pull off a beret or not... but I do feel that balance is very important in knitting.
These have both been interrupted, however, by a sudden need to finish a couple of pairs of socks so I can cast on for 2-at-a-time with this assortment of 40"-47" circulars that just arrived. (Limits are good too.)
In addition to all this knitting stuff, I only have 1 week to get through the last of season 2 and all of season 3 of Lost before the new season starts! Let me tell you, it is so much more interesting and cohesive watched straight through than broken up and mixed in with weeks of repeats over 3 years! (It also makes for some primo knitting/family time... unfortunately it also means some late nights since we can only watch it once JoJo has gone to bed. Speaking of which... I think it's about that time.)
But before you go... let me know what you think of the new Interweave. What's your favorite? Anyone else up for some Lace?
