Noro Kureyon Twice

Yet another Lady Eleanor stole in Noro in progress - still some way to go :-)

Also I didn´t manage to resist temptation any longer and made my first Ruffles - rather short since I wanted to use only 1 ball of Noro but I like the result anyway. I combined it with another red wool and knitted one side in Noro and one in the other yarn as suggested in the book. It looks interesting, sooner or later I will try to do the same using dark purple wool in combination with this Noro shade.

    I have to say that the two Lady Eleanors I've seen on this site knit in Noro have been my favorites by far. I think the slow way in which Noro changes color works beautifully for this project. Excellent choice of yarn and beautiful work - congratulations!

    I completely agree with Grumperina. I am so enamored with your Eleanors! You've definitely inspired me to tackle this project.

    I think that is one of the most beautiful Ruffles I have seen and your Lady Eleanor is gorgeous! Great color choices!

    O.k., you've convinced me. I have some pastel yellow Cotton Fleece set aside for Ruffles, but that Noro/solid combo is to die for. I'm going to have to make this scarf more than once. The Eleanor is gorgeous, too ... great work!

    They are both so beautiful - going to grap some Noro myself right now. Oh no, I have 8 WIPs, can't do that :-(

    looks fabulous! i'm working up mine right now in the 134 colorway and i cant wait until its done!

    The one on the photo is 134 shade, too :-)) How big are your rectangles? Mine are 8 stitches wide and I am working on number 8 needles (continental). I am only sorry it knits quite fast since I just love working on it.
    I am thinking of using a different fringe, although I haven´t decided what kind yet.

    Holy Crap! That's so beautiful! How many balls of Noro does this project take?

     
  • At 3:33 PM, Blogger verlit said…

    It depends how long you want it :-) I will use about 12 balls, I guess (including the fringe).

    Noro seems like the perfect yarn for this project. Hands down.

    Such a creative idea, combining the variegated yarn with a solid color - good work. And the Lady Eleanor is one of the nicest uses of Noro that I've seen yet.

    Both projects are gorgeous and totally inspiring. I've never knit with Noro before but you can bet that I will be some time very soon!

    For the Eleanor, which is lovely, what size needles did you use? Any other changes I should be aware of when using Kureyon? Thanks!
