My Obsession With "Wrap" Continues

I decided last night to start another "Lady Eleanor" wrap. I've had the Noro yarn for this since last Fall. My plan is to have it finished by the end of this month and still have time for a few small Christmas projects. I am still stalled on Colin's sweater due to a mistake in the pattern and Zoe Mellor has not responded to my inquiry regarding errata. There was an address on the pattern book to contact her and I sent her a letter in the mail (no email address to be found.) That was a month ago and she never responded. I'm guessing she never got it. No knitting designer would ignore correspondence from a fellow knitter. It just wouldn't happen. Right?

The funky two different needle alpaca shawl is blocking. It is a weird shape. (It is shown doubled here. I had to do it this way because I don't have space to lay it out on the floor.) I wonder if that had anything to do with the needle fiasco. I tried to stretch it out into a more triangular shape but it wasn't having any of that.
I finished a sock and started another one at an Open House yesterday. Knitting is getting accomplished. And today, all I want to do is go home and work on Lady Eleanor. Entrelac is SO MUCH FUN!!

I haven't done a Lady Eleanor, but I did start another shawl last night. Lord help me.

BTW, your -- um, friend? -- the one blog you hate but stalk anyway? She's on Ravelry.

I have just started my first entrelac scarf. I supposed that it all makes sense one you've actually done a few rows??

The Lady Eleanor is beautiful!
