i am never going to win

do not stay up until 2 a.m. thinking you are going to win this. i warn you now, it is horribly addicting and painful. i mean who wants to click on thousands of listings? apparently i did at 2 a.m. this morning. but it is just so intriguing.

last night i went to SnB. it has been awhile, mainly due to the fact that alias is on wednesday nights. so last night i missed about half of alias. first. time. ever. i used to love this show so much that i wouldn't miss a minute for the world. you see what knitting has done to me? it may just be that i am not loving this season. somehow it just feels different. don't get me wrong, it is still really good, i just don't know if it is "amy is obsessed good" anymore.

i have done 5 or so more rows on my entrelac, maybe 7. here is an updated picture. you can see how the color is working out. i am still not in love with it, but it is definately growing on me. it is just fun and interesting to see it develop.

i also cast on for the cape. i really like the neutral color i chose in the end. i think i will get more use from it. some of the girls at SnB last night helped me decipher the pattern. it wasn't too hard, i just needed to know i was reading it correctly. i also will need to figure out at what point i can shorten it. the model is quite tall and it hits the back of her knees. i probably would need to take a good 6-10 inches off if i want it to be shorter than it is on the model to begin with and if i take into consideration i am only 5'4".

i am going to try and progress further on it later this afternoon. now i think i need to make a cup of tea and get back to work. sometimes it is really hard to focus when you work from home! especially with your stash in sight, your mind goes crazy!

I just want to tell you, I LOVE the way your entrelac is coming out! It looks like a very colorful patchwork quilt. I have been wanting to learn how to do it for a while. Maybe this wrap is a good way to learn! I'm also looking forward to seeing how your cape turns out. I fell in love with the Anthropoligie one when I first saw it.

I agree with Tami, that entrelac is looking awesome, even if you're not 100 percent sold on the colors! I don't know how you can work from home when your knitting is right there! I would be tempted away all the time!!!
