girly sock #2 is underway ... i am on the gusset, so it's all downhill from here!
normally, i would be dreaming of my next pair of socks ... but, i'm not. i'm dreaming of lady eleanor. this entrelac beauty is from interweave's scarfstyle. and like all good books, it inspired an ongoing KAL that's in its second year!
... now i just need to get my hands on some silk garden! (the yarn diet is almost over)(not that i was faithful)
EDIT: after mouse left a comment, i replied to her comment with gusto! i felt the need to further explain my latest obsession ...
"you know how sometimes you're in love with something ... that's what it is .... LOVE. lady eleanor LOVE!
i saw one on a woman at my LYS last winter. i gasped! i held my breath .... and i whispered .... "oh, it's a lady eleanor". i thought i had whispered, but the woman turned around, beaming with pride and recognition.
i'm sure moments like that made her think the cost and time was so worth it. not that any of us knitters are vain (as seinfeld would say, "not that there's anything wrong with that.")
but, webs has a colorway i like on closeout.
i'm going to try and be good and only order that yarn.
i can do it.
i am strong!"
... sometimes i just don't understand myself. i'm okay with that, but i'm sure it (sometimes) bewilders others. ahhhh, e l e a n o r . . . .
