I am furiously trying to finish the Noro Kureyon entrelac wrap that you all have seen me carrying around the last two weeks. Last night, sick, I sat down to some American Idol and decided to finish it up. I am almost done…almost. I swear it just keeps going. Everytime I think I am done, I find another ball of kureyon in the darn Knit Happens bag. If you haven’t learned how to purl backwards yet, you really should. It definitely helps with being lazy and watching American Idol. There really isn’t much movement involved in making entrelac when you can purl back without flipping the work over.
And I don’t think that the dogs are helping. This is Kirby, my physically challenged italian greyhound who thinks that it is entirely appropriate to rub his back and butt on my kureyon. It’s an itchy yarn, of course, so I understand why he is so attracted to it. But really Kirby, really?
So why am I trying to finish this wrap sized project so quickly? Because another wrap waits in the wings. This fabulous box arrived from the Fiber Company last week. Its their new Organik yarn, made from wonderful organic wool, alpaca and a hint of silk and dyed with environmentally safe dyes. The stuff is gorgeous. This color is called “Jungle.” It’s going to become another wrap for a book being published next spring. Super exciting!
