But I love Hubby more for buying it for me!



My birthday present, Noro Silk Garden colorway 205. I heart this yarn more than I've ever hearted a yarn before. It's sooooo pretty. Now what will it be used for you ask? Why the Lady Eleanor Stole from ScarfStyle of course! Here it is in the works.




I'm so excited about this project. It's the most addictive project I've done. I literally have to talk myself out of working on it so I can do motherly and household responsibilities. The Entrelac is a lot easier to do than I expected. Minus the first night I tried to start while I was tired and got a mangled mess. Somehow I can manage to get a pattern completely wrong multiple times despite carefully counting and redoing, just by being tired. The next day I tried again and it was perfect the first time. Apparently I've reached the point in my knitting skills where I can knit tired but not start a project tired. Although I made a few too many mistakes last night while knitting too. Hmmm...let's go back to saying I can't knit while tired, or better yet I can knit but not well while tired.

I'm also working on some dishcloths for my mom's birthday. I have four done so far. Two are from the monthly dishcloth KAL and the other two are the Tried and True Dishcloth pattern from knitlist.com. Click on the pictures for a closer look, they're a little hard to see.











I plan on working up another two from the last ball of yarn. Mom's going to really like them I think. Okay so I already know she will because I showed them to her. Hubby wants to get her something else too so it should be a good birthday for her. Just because I knit her some washcloths.
