I know I know I haven’t updated this blog in awhile. I’ve been working! YAY income is always good. Anyway – I gave up on the pink Lady Eleanor Shawl I started. I had too many mistakes in it and tried very hard to frog the shawl. Imagine my surprise when I found out that when knitting with small needles with Noro Silk Garden – it tears every six inches or so. So I had to just throw it all away. Oh the pain of tossing all of that work. That lesson has been learned. So what did I do? I purchased some more Noro Silk Garden in the hard to find denim color way and used the correct sized needle and would you believe I’m almost done? (The photo on the left of the greenish blue is actually hanging form my dining room chair.)I thought that it would take me about three or four months to complete it – but it’s been only since mother’s day (about five weeks) that I’ve been working on it and look at my progress. I’m soooooo stoked and ready to wear it. Never mind that it’s 87 degrees right now – but fall will come again soon and Lady E and I will become close friends.
