I just tried to take a picture of my progress, but the batteries died right as I did it!

About the backing, maybe I will try to sew a lining into a purse to practice my skillz then sew on a nice soft backing Smiley

I've added a purple square and am wondering if anyone has a pattern in mind for adding the third color (if you are using three colors) or if you are just going to wing it.

Also I am knitting on circulars and as I laid it out to take a pic I thought that it might be a neat pattern for a purse with circular handles!  I may have to keep that in mind for the future.

I like the idea of a stockinette backing, I will have to decide if I dislike the back enough to cover it.  I was thinking of a fabric backing too, but I don't know how to sew a fabric onto a knitted item and wouldn't want to screw up on something thats a gift.

I LOVE the fact that it is from a real song (and I just so happen to be listening to the Beatles as I peruse the site!).  I was thinking of those binary hats and scarves tonight and how it is pretty neat that it is like a coded message to the wearer, or to whoever else can decode it.  This reminds me of that soo much.  This really does rock.

I have gotten through the first two sections (rows of triangles/squares?).  I had to keep restarting last night because stitches kept jumping off my needles, or I totally got myself mixed up.  When I thought I had gotten throught the first MC section I got down to 2 stitches and realized I had only done 9 on the middle triangle instead of ten! ARGH! 
I started again today during lunch at work and worked on it off and on tonight and it really is moving fast!  I CO 30st instead of 20 just cause I wanted more width.  I am using the yarn called for in the pattern just because I think it is appropriate for the giftee, but I am imagining all sorts of combos! 
I dislike picking up stitches!! It is going ok though, I am hoping I will be a pro by the end.  I use a crochet hook to pull the yarn up.
I will take pics and post as soon as I can. 

Entrelac is seriously easy though, I always read that it was and I am SOOO happy to find that it is true  Grin

I'm starting the Danica scarf for a friend for Christmas, and have never done entrelac before.  I may need encouragement!  Anyone want to join in?

I love the colors you chose for the blanket, so sweet.  I really like the edging too, adds a nice touch.

The bag is really cute too, I haven't seen one like it before.  As for the closure I have no clue Smiley  I'm not good at that type of thing.  Maybe an opal or iridescent colored button that looked shell like?

He's really cute.  I've been thinking of doing a kitty... How long did it take you?

I really like the white in between color changes.  Makes me wish I had done that, but I still like mine.  I'm done with my purple round and am ready to move back to the red.  I think I
'm going to do the next set of colors only 3 rows each, then one row each for the next set.  I'm trying to decide if I want to border it in black or not.

I love him!  I have never tried an amagurumi before, you inspire me!  Maybe I can find that book somewhere, although I've seen tons of patterns here too.  Good luck finishing your WIP's!
