Lady Eleanor finished!

There it is - finished and blocked. I used the same colorway as Cristina and I am sooo pleased with the result. I had a difficult time with making fringe on my first Lady Eleanor. Since I made that one from much finer yarn I decided to crochet the fringe and it looked fine.
With Noro I thought the result might not be so nice and at the same time with these bright, "strong" colors the fringe from single yarn strand made in the same way as it is in the book looked a bit...thin.
So I changed it completely and instead of romantic Lady Eleanor fringe I added kind of funny "joker" fringe instead. What do you think?


Here is the detail of the fringe:

    I think this "joker" fringe suit very beautifully this work.
    It is a " chef-d'oeuvre"

    Very nice !!!

    What a great improvement on the original! Where did you find this edging, or is it something you made up yourself?

    Thanks :-)
    The bobbles are made simply by knitting a little square in stockinette (I hope this is the right term for it :-), then you put a bit of leftover yarn in the middle as stuffing, run tapestry needle through the edges and pull it close. The rest are simple triangles starting with 8 stitches (since my entrelac triangles are 8 stitches wide).

    If I saw you on the street and you were wearing your beautiful Lady Eleanor in Noro with the joker fringe I would mug you, take your stole, and never look back. That's how beautiful this is.

    sooner: Well, thank you :-))) What town are you from? Just to know what place to avoid, just in case. ;-))

    Sooner is all talk. It's true. Every time I flip someone off in the car he reminds me that if we're ever in a fight he will run. So if he came up and tried to mug you he would totally fail and you could probably just beat him down with your ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS PERFECT shawl. I hate shawls but now must do the Lady Entrelac in Noro. I must. And Sooner can't have any.

    Love,

    Bevin

    I know I am "late" to this party, but I love your Lady Eleanor--it is next on my list, after Color on Color. What Noro, and colorway did you use? And what size needles did you use? Could you pm me these details? Or post on my blog!? Thanks!
