Insert creative title here

I think I'm in a knitting funk. I don't have a major project at the moment, just doing small things that get done quickly. I have a major project on the list, but don't have the oomph to get the yarn out and do it. I need the oomph. Someone push me in the right direction. Wish it was something I could order or pick up in a store.

So, onto the finished projects:






That's the Ribbon X-back, and the butterfly socks that my sockapalooza pal is getting. Someone last post asked what pattern it was. It's a Fibertrends pattern, called Butterflies and Blossoms, or Blossoms and Butterflies. Something like that.

WIPs:






The baby bootie is from 50 Baby Booties to Knit, made in Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino. And the stripey goodness is a baby cardigan for my hubby's cousin's son (2nd cousin?) for Xmas. Pattern is from Family Circle Easy Knitting Spring/Summer 05 and is in Manos Cotton Stria (in olive, black and mint). And that thing that the baby bootie is resting on? Don'tcha know? It's a bongo to play Donkey Konga!

I would like to learn how to do entrelac. Any one have a fairly simple pattern, maybe for a scarf, that they can point me to? Maybe that will give me the push I need to get out of the funk.

Non knitting content:
I got out of the shower this morning and found my son in his room playing his game boy. It was just after 6 am, and this is how I found him...

Everything looks lovely! I saw an entrelac pattern in one of the books that Debbie Bliss worked on with Noro. I'm trying to remember which one....

*cackle* Your son is just too cute :). I forgot to mention when I saw you in the store... I'm ripping Xback. Yep, I don't like it and it just didn't fit me right. Maybe NEXT Spring I can afford a better yarn for making Xback. I'm not slim enough for it yet, anyway. Trust me. The striped cardigan is coming along nicely. And Yay! you got the booties done! I know what you mean about being in a funk. I'm still seriously contemplating ripping Belle too. Seems like nothing's going my way knitting wise. Hope things look up for you!

HAH! I love little boys and tents/sheets/tables/beds/whatever they can use to make their own little worlds. Too funny! Congrats on the xback! I haven't even got the gumption to start that one yet!
