I arrived home yesterday to find this in my mail from Amazon. (please ignore the desk...I know it's a disaster area but I DO work here) I like this book although it looks like they borrowed MY camera to take the photos. (and that's a bad thing) The patterns are interesting. I especially like the "Here and There Cables" (Norah Gaughan) pattern that has no right and wrong side. Having a wrong side in a scarf makes me crazy.
But THIS is the pattern I LOVE:
Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole by Kathleen Power Johnson
Could someone make this for me please? I really don't have time. Ha ha. Seriously, I don't know if I love the yarn or the pattern. I looked the yarn up online (La Lana Wools Forever Random Blends 60% wool, 40% mohair - Faerie Queen) and I'd have to sell my house to make this thing with that yarn. So, do I settle for it in less expensive yarn or just scrap the whole silly idea? I know... this will be my "after I win the lottery" project. There you go. That's settled. I love it when I make decisions.
Clapotis is clicking along, the sweater and socks are in limbo, and all I can think about is buying more yarn. It's a sickness I tell you. A sickness.
