Still busy knitting!

Hi there!

I have been quite busy with knitting projects, but due to an intense work schedule, I don't have much time for blogging about it.  So, this is a catch up on my latest projects.

First off, I took an entrelac class to start the year.  It met on two Sundays, at local shop Purl Knit Cafe, with Kate Starr.  I used some silk garden from my stash, to do this.  It was a fun class, and Kate is a great teacher!  I wanted an intro to entrelac, as I have had in my queue for some time now the Lady Eleanor shawl pattern.  I have some Noro Slver Thaw for it, and I think it will be beautiful!  No longer intimidated - I picked up this skill right away.  It is not as difficult as I expected.

And, do you recognized this?  It is only one of the most gorgeous patterns available right now!  

from Twist Collective, Winter 2008
Yarn:  Briggs & Little Atlantic
Needles:  size 10 1/2

Atlantic is a bulky yarn, and once you sit down & really start working on this pattern, it goes fast!  Don't be intimidated by all the cable & leaves.  The pattern is well written, and logical.  I have the back, left front & sleeves all finished, and am up to the armhole shaping on the front right.  I am hoping to block the pieces & sew together this weekend.

I do have one more project started recently, but will post about that later.  Sylvi is really the star project right now!
