Lady E is coming along nicely. We're almost to the end of skein #3. I don't know as I'll have it done by the gift giving deadline, but I'm trying awfully hard to make it so. This is a great pattern. I want to knit one for myself when I'm done with this one, though I may just get the yarn and table it for a while. All the little squares do get dull.
Noro can be iffy to knit with from skein to skein because the colors don't always follow the same progression. Skeins begin and end in different places and on different colors. I'm trying to keep the color progressions in the same place when I start new skeins (which means breaking yarn and then spit splicing) if possible, but otherwise am not too worried about making it run in the same progression. I figure, it'll be more organic this way.
I haven't had much time to knit at all lately and when I do knit, this is all I'm knitting because of my giftgiving deadline. Fortunately, the color changes and small rectangles thus far have saved it from being deathly dull knitting.
This is not so much about EtsyFriday as it is, Nifty Merchant On Sunday.
I give you Twisted Fiber Arts. OMG. This stuff is self striping and so nifty. Featured a while back on L&V's daily chum, I just had to get some. So very worth the hype. You should run, not walk, out to get some.
Sachi's Purls had handspun sock yarn that wasn't sold out this past week and I managed to get my hands on a skein. The colorway is "Bitch" and oh man oh man do I love it so.
You really need to stalk this fiber artist's blog and website so you can get some too.
I really wasn't lying about the nasty, kitten spit covered knitwear all over this house. Now they're both doing it. I won't be wearing this scarf again, I don't really think.
Dear Keetonz, thx for the saliva. Also, EEEUW. love&kisses, mama.
