Lady Eleanor progress


Here is a progress report on my Lady Eleanor. I'm using three different colors of yarn from Handpainted Yarn. They are actually the same color, but different shades. This yarn is SO soft! I highly recommend it. It's turning out a little too wide to be a stole so I think it will be a throw blanket for my couch. This is my first attempt at entrelac and it couldn't be simpler. The directions in the pattern are very easy to follow. I'll be back with a picture when she's finished!

    i love this yarn too...how many hanks are you using?

    It's hard to say because this yarn has been recycled a few times! I'm guessing I've used 4 hanks (800 yds +). It's 40 inches long now and 17 inches wide. Hope that helps!

    I love your Eleanor, she is beautiful. Is that the pure merino wool from handpainted yarns? I am thinking of ordering some yarn from that company as it all looks fabulous and is reasonable!

    Yes, it is the pure merino. I highly recommend them, you won't find a better yarn at a better price! The colors I used were Pearl and Middle Earth. The colors you get arn't always the exact shade on the website so keep that in mind. The kettle dying process they use yields different shades in the same dyelot. Don't let that keep you from ordering, the yarn is wonderful.
