Not the "so, you know I am a Canadian eh?", eh (even though I am Canadian and have been known on occasion to use the eh? although I don't know why and how I ever even started using it) but more the eh as in it doesn't thrill me, I could take it or leave it, it could be dreckma. Eh.
And the eh I speak of?
This is the Easy Drop Stitch Scarf Pattern from Frazzled Knits. Nothing wrong with the pattern; I am just not so sure about my yarn choice. I am also not an orange person but I had this lovely yarn in my stash and thought I could use it up. But it isn't totally working for me. It is possible that it will look great when all is said and done but I am not sure at this point.
I have had a few opinions and so far everyone else who has seen it likes it. Me, still not sure. Eh.
On a brighter front I have a couple of other E related fibre items I do love (and I am aware that the snow below the photos means they were taken a long time ago - while I am somewhat pathetic about the photo taking, the CFS and Fibro are also making the blogging pretty onerous):
Elfine's Socks in Lorna's Laces (Ruby Red Colourway). I LOVE these. I used this pattern for the first (and only) socks I made during Sockapalooza (May 2006). Courtney loved hers and I have always wanted to knit a pair for me. And now I am.
These are definitely a keeper! More like the Fonzie's ehhhhhhhh (okay I suppose it was more of an aaayyyy but I'm not telling) for these babies!
I had the wonderful opportunity to take a class with Evelyn at Madrona (I think I am still recovering from that little frolic...) and she is a blast! A generous teacher with some incredible experience.
I couldn't wait to start this lovely. I am using Malabrigo Lace and it is WONDERFUL to knit with; and at a lowly $10.00 for 470 yards an incredible bargain to boot! This scarf is knitting up very quickly (these are old photos) and this has been an exquisite experience for sure! I guess not all the E's are so bad!
