Hello from Czech Republic.
Unlike many of you I decided NOT to start with Ruffles (although I was tempted :-) and went for Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole.

It looks rather different from the original since I used totally different yarn (in color, quality and gauge) but I really like it anyway.

    I'm so impressed. I love this piece. I've been wanting to do the Eleanor ever since I got the book. How did you make the adjustment to a new yarn and different gauge? Was it difficult? Did you knit backwards?

    Well, I rarely follow the instructions exactly when knitting so I didn´t do any complicated calculations. I know from my previous projects that entrelac is wider than normal stich and you need only 2/3 of stiches to get the same width as when knitting „normally“. Therefore I just made a calculation how many stiches I need to get roughly same width and that was it.
    The only real problem was the fringe. My yarn is much thinner than original one and when I tried to make a fringe the way it is made in the book it was too thin and didn´t look nice at all. So in the end I crocheted it instead and it looks just fine.

    thats lovely! i've been wanting to make that stole since I got the book but I just haven't found the right yarn yet--yours looks great in a solid though and now I'm tempted by some yarn in my stash...
