Mulva Progress

So here's ol' what's-her-name:

Possible pronounciations - En-a, that rhymes with penne, N.A.; EE-nah, that rhymes with Mina; and EE-ni, that rhymes with meanie, as in eenie meanie minie mo. I'm partial to the first one, because anything that rhymes with food is good in my book.

I have to say, I'm extremely proud of myself (probably premature pride, I still have a ways to go) - this is really my first charted work (uncharted territory - heh heh, ok, bad pun), and while there's a mistake here and there, for the most part, I think it looks good. And this yarn really is fantastic, incredibly soft, and surprisingly, considering its weight, warm. I'm kind of regretting that I didn't save it for the Knitting Olympics, because I think with stamina, endurance, a few tears, and a bit of pain, it could have been completed in 16 days, and it certainly would have been a gold medal performance. Now, if I do the big O, and it's going to have to be that darn baby project - which, while not difficult knitting, would still be a challenge because I would have to disrupt my regularly scheduled programming (Ene and lacy cardigan), to do it. I still have a few days to ponder.

Mulva is Mauve? It bugs me the way a flash completely changes the color of the yarn, esp. since, as you know, color is my fetish.
