As a few of you have commented, these colors just sing "springtime". We are back on track and the entrelac is sailing right along. I've surfed a few other blogsites to see other folks' Lady E's and see that a few people have used "backward knitting" to avoid the turning/purling business. It seems as if it would definately speed things up a bit. Will search out a video or book with pictures to see if I can learn the technique.
Lady E in SWS in (gasp) "natural daylight".
I almost wish I'd sized up the needles, maybe to 10s, after seeing Bets' Lady E out of Mr Joe...hmmm......a lil cross dressing going on down there? I'm thinking that the SWS softens up and drapes well with a little blocking...but not so much that I lose the texture.....will cross that bridge when I come to it! I also think I'm going to end up needing more than 35 tiers to get the size I want....it is starting to turn into almost "no brainer" DVD knitting. (Watched "The Guardian" today and knitted on her for almost 2 more hours. Go Coast Guard!)
Caught Pearl playing with the trailing skein!

Lastly, just a plug for Costco. I love Costco. Last year DH gave me a 30G video IPOD for my birthday/mother's day present. I loved it..used it daily. excercise. podcasts. movies. audible books. music. photo album. you name it. Suddenly a few weeks ago it goes bust. Won't charge up all the way. stops in the middle of something. Yuck. I know he got it at Costco. I took it back...no receipt...no box. Not only do they replace it...since it's now $50 cheaper than it was 8 months ago, they give me the $50 difference. Leaving, I decide to buy a paper shredder. The sign says $18 off with coupon.I don't have a coupon. I tell the cashier..."i don't have the $18 off coupon". She says "OK" and scans one from the drawer. I save $18. On my way out the door, I stop to buy a 75 cent diet lime coke. I put a dollar in the machiine. I get my coke. In the change box is my quarter plus 2 other quarters. I was a happy shopper with my brand spanky new Ipod, my new shredder, my diet lime coke and an unexpected $68.75. Hmmmmmm.....sounds like a good reason to go buy some yarn!
