Eh.

I started the entrelac socks. I don't mind doing the entrelac. I actually quite like it. But, on size 1 dpns? Eh. Not liking it so much. This is what I have so far.




I put the socks down in favor of the Trellis Scarf in the most recent Interweave Knits. I'm using Handmaiden Silk Floss that my WONDERFUL SP sent me in the Knitty SP5. It's coming along wonderfully. 'Cept, the last several rows, I can't seem to keep the correct number of stitches on the needles. Makes me want to throw it across the room.



Today was Administrative Professionals Day (say it with me folks, Secretary's Day). The boss came back from lunch carrying a vase of flowers. What's noteworthy about these particular flowers? Well, he picked the vase to match the color of my fingernails (a baby blue). But the vase has a mint green stripe, and he was quite upset that it didn't match. It's funny. Ok, maybe just to me. In any case, I got to play with the zoom feature of my camera...

The pink flower close up is great - nice camera you've got there. I also like the entrelac sock but I might consider doing a simple Stockinette foot and starting the entrelac on the leg, JMHO.

Beautiful scarf in progress! It'll totally be worth the headache :)

I'm also working on entrelac socks too, I had to set them down as well for a bit! I'm hoping to get back to them soon, they're fun, but (stealing your title), kinda eh at the same time.

aw! your boss is so sweet! He really put some thought into the gift instead of just getting a bunch of flowers and a generic card. If only all bosses were as thoughtful.

I can't imagine doing entrelac on socks. Good luck.

OOps I didn't even realize what today was.. Happy AP Week! The socks look nice. Sorry they're on tiny needles though. Just think forward to wearing them!! :)

Jennifer said...

Ooo, entrelac on toothpicks. Yeah, not fun.

The entrelac socks may be tedious, but they look fantastic. Your photo of trellis shows the pattern a lot better than IK did. I thought I liked it before, now I KNOW I do!

Valerie said...

How the heck are you doing those decrease 7 to 5 stitches on the IK scarf? Seriously, I want to know! :)

Ali said...

Those socks look so worth the effort of knitting on the tiny needles. Your pictures of Trellis and the flower are beautiful!

Entrelac socks. It just sounds terrifying. I think the Yarn Harlot tried and accidentally lost the one she'd been knitting... Options...

Brittany said...

The entrelac socks are looking great!

I love the flowers. Mmmm... flowers!

I'm sorry you're not experiencing knitting nirvana right now! I know what you mean when you want to throw something across the room... How wonderful that your boss gave you those flowers! Such a pretty arrangement.

Pam said...

Your socks are great! I don't like knitting on 1's either

The socks are looking really cool even if they are tedious to knit.

Yay for the pretty flowers too :)

Woah! Those socks are incredible!

And your boss sounds sweet! Mine forgot secretary's day. But that's ok, I don't celebrate bosses day ;-)
