I finally finished my Lady Eleanor scarf and have ordered some Noro Silk Garden to make another.
Cheapskate that I am, I only bought the Noro because Webs was having a closeout sale on some of its colors, so I got 12 skeins of colorway 246 for $5.79 per skein, instead of the usual $10.95 per.
I've also finished my birthday gifts for Emma, spawn of SteveD. I made a little hat featuring a merry band of owls and a pair of mittens that actually turned out. I showed Steve the photo of the first mitten and he said it looked like a condom. :P Just goes to show that his mind is in the gutter.
Meanwhile, I also have some lovely Knit Picks Imagination fingering yarn and spent my morning browsing through scarf and wrap patterns, trying to choose the right one. I think I've found it. I'm going to make an expanded version of Brooke's Column of Leaves scarf. Since my yarn's fingering weight, I can possibly make a triple repeat of the pattern without it being too heavy. We'll see how it goes.
And in other other news, Steve and I finally heard back about our book chapter. Friday I spent rushing around via email begging for the okay to use snippets of various things to show as samples in our chapter. It's funny how we've been waiting for over six months since we sent in our draft and now that the editors got back with us, we have to turn everything in on Monday.
On the bright side, the chapter didn't seem so frighteningly disjointed as it had the last time I read it. Apparently it's approved with time ;)
