And now I have the photos to prove it!  \o/

Man that's a pain.  I've been telling myself I would organize the stash and inventory it on Ravelry for a while now, and been putting it off.  Now I'm not putting it off - it's just gonna TAKE forever.  I'm about 2 bins in, out of 20 or so.  *sigh*  

Does look pretty, though!

and then I shall be dangerous!

About three-quarters of the way through my first attempt to knit the Lady Eleanor entrelac stole, I finally figured out how to knit backwards, thereby limiting the number of times I had to turn the work by about half.  It would've been considerably more than that, except that I couldn't figure out how to slip with yarn in back and purl two together backwards, which meant I still had to do all the odd-numbered tiers turning all the time. 

Just cast on my second attempt, and I've finally figured it out!  \o/  Now all I need to do from the wrong-side is to pick up and purl - and eventually I may figure that out too!  Next, spinning!

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] tricksterquinn, both because I'm a sheep and because I couldn't resist signing up to see what she might make me. 

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- What I create will be just for you.
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- You will receive your item before the end of the year (or sooner).
- You will have no clue what the item is going to be. It could be a story or poetry. It could be a piece of handmade jewelry or an art doll. I may draw, paint, collage or knit something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! 
Although, I must admit, the odds are strongly in the favor of knitting. 
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? No catch, I think.  I suspect that even those on this list who are crafters are, shall we say, booked pretty heavily this year.  :-)  So first come, first serve!

Ready, set, make! :)

But after some 60 rounds of entrelac (so not quite 4000 turns), I've finally figured out how to knit backwards!  Woot!  Still a little slow, but still faster and easier than having to turn the entire piece every 8 stitches. 

On other craft fronts, my Golding drop spindle showed up, and I've started my first forays into spinning yarn.  Also goes slow, but I think in time this will be a great deal of fun.
