I did finally get the extra yarn I needed to finish my latest entrelac bag and that's what I'm really itching to work on. Maybe after I finish the first glove, I'll take a little break from them to finish the bag. After all, I started it first!

I dutifully knit up a swatch to check my guage which also served to give me a little practice with the tiny needles and yarn. Come to think of it, I can't even remember the last time I did that - knitting up a swatch. When I took up knitting again a couple of years ago, I decided to start with quick, easy projects like scarves. After a few of those I jumped right into felting. Hardly the sort of knitting that requires a guage check. But gloves - obviously I need to try to get it right.

This has been a fun project to work on, but I'm eager to finish it and move on. It's been cold here the last few days, so a large pile of wool sitting in my lap has been rather welcome. I'm in North Carolina though, so days with 80-90 degree temps will be here soon. Time to plan for a smaller project.
I just realized from a distance my bag looks kind of like a giant checkered Easter egg. Unintentional, I swear! Anyway, I hope this Easter finds you all happy, healthy, and with lots of time to knit!
