Finally I’ve got some knitterly updates for all of you and it covers from head to toe!!! Where do you want me to start first? Top to bottom or bottom to top? Hmm…time to make a decision. Ah well, I’ll start with the project that I finished first.
Hang on!! Before that, let me present you Blueberry Leo, modeled by my hunky hubby!! Yes, he was home and I managed to persuade him to let me take a picture of him in the sweater. Perfect fit!!! Not bad for a first man sweater I saw!!
Back to FOs, the No 1 project is of course the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole for my dearest Mummy, knitted with the gorgeous Noro Silk Garden. Love the colours of the yarn but I’m not too fond of the little pieces of twigs in between the yarn every now and then. They annoyed me a lot but the colours just won me over. Therefore, I shall persevere. Entrelac isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It’s actually very easy once you get the hang of it!! Wonder why I didn’t start the project earlier as I bought the yarn ages ago!!! Anyway, Mum loves it but she left it here in Perth!!!!!!!!!!!!! DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pattern: Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole from Scarf Style
Yarn: 9 and 1/3 balls of Noro Silk Garden (Colour #205)
Needles: 6 mm
Since I only used 9 and 1/3 balls of the Noro Silk Garden for the stole, I used the leftover yarn for Calorimetry. I modified the pattern a little bit by casting only 80 stitches and I’m very glad I did that!! It’s a perfect fit for my small head now!! Now I can use it whenever I have bad hair days!! Hahaha .

Lastly, I’ve finally managed to finish the remaining of the Waving Lace Socks after such a looooooooooooooooong time. I put it aside while knitting Lady E as I was hoping to finish it before the big day.
Pattern: Waving Lace Socks from Favorite Socks
Yarn: The Knittery 4ply Sock: Merino Cashmere (Orange Blossom)
Needles: 2.5 mm
Now I’m planning to start another pair of socks using my stash yarn but don’t think I’ll cast on yet as I’ve got two projects on hand at the moment. Anyway, what type of heel do you recommend? I’ve done a few pairs using Wendy’s Gusset Heel for toe up socks. What are the other easy type of heels for toe up apart from short rows?
