Yes, the Lady Eleanor finally makes her debut on my website! Her knitting was finished at 12:04a.m. Tuesday, April 4. She spent the night stretched to all hell and back blocking on my living room floor, and her fringe was added this afternoon. Hey, it's only 32 days after the deadline...better late than never, yes?
Posting delayed due to unstable internet connection and lack of pictures on the computer at work.
Name: Lady Eleanor
Pattern Source: Scarf Style by Pam Allen, design by Kathleen Power Johnson.
Yarn: Noro Kureyon, colour #134, bought from Ebay, 10 skeins (used most of it, but not all)
Needles: Boye #10 circs
Size: approx. 20" wide x 80" long (not including fringe)
Started: February 10, 2006 Completed: April 4, 2006
-In all honesty, I could have had this done in time for the Olympics had I not been trying to move 300 miles in the meantime. It is a very easy knit, and the pattern is very clear and helpful. I've had it about 90% done for over a month before I could finally finish it.
-If I ever made this again, which is a possibility but not in the near future, I'd go with bigger needles for a more open look, and a larger scarf/stole. I would NOT use the Noro ever again if I could help it!
-My fringe is only 15" long as opposed to the 20" in the pattern, and has only six rows of knotwork. I did not trim the ends even as I rather liked the uneven-ness of it.
I'm feeling a bit anticlimatic - the heavens didn't open and pour sunshine down on her or anything! I mean, c'mon! But she was a fun knit, and I'm very glad to have her done and be able to use her during tech this weekend!
