i am back on track i think with lady eleanor. this time, i am knitting with size 7 turbos, as my gauge was really loose with 8's, once i began to knit and purl backwards. of course, i'm still sitting on the fence about this ... and essentially have two lady e's in progress!





but, i am not on the fence about this sock any longer ... it's a keeper !

Wow, there's just something about noro and entrelac that has me speechless. Soo beautiful!! And that sock is looking pretty sweet too. The leaves are very clear and delicate.

Ms. E looks awesome! Could you share any good resources on learning to knit backwards? (The directions for Lizard Ridge say it will make the very short short-rows easier, too).

Lady Eleanor is looking very splendid. I agree, the Noro and the Entrelac just says "wow!". And that sock is great too, what's the pattern?

these are both lovely, if not AT ALL what i told you to knit! your mom is totally going to have to fight me for those socks.

I think both of those projects are total keepers. From the pictures, it looks like the 7's are a good choice, remembering that the stitches might open a bit during blocking.

i love lady eleanor—and wish i had the patience to make one, but i find even the thought of entrelac hateful—is that beig closed-minded??

Damn, girl....you are a pro knitter. The pattern on the sock--beautiful leaf shapes. I've been proud I finally learned to cable! Your WIP's are inspiring!

Evelyn Clark OWNS me; her sock patterns are so simple and elegant and pretty. I should take out an insurance policy on her or something. I love the color you chose for the socks. I can't wait to wear them!
