The Lady is finally done!!

I finally blocked and put the fringe on my Lady Eleanor. And I love her so much!!

(click for big)











She turned out a little wider and about 10-12 inches longer than the pattern calls for. I'm glad because that guarantees that I can throw the ends over my shoulder and they will stay.

Made out of Manos del Uruguay on size 10 needles.

    Beautiful! How hard was the trim? I'm thing ing of attempting this one at some point but I'm unsure about doing the trim.

    The trim is actually quite easy to do, the only problem is that it is time consuming. One side took me about an hour and a half. Now, maybe I am just slow :), but it seemed longer than it should have!

    I'm quite happy with the trim. Wasn't sure about it at first, but I felt it added a lot and definately "finished" it nicely.

    That is gorgeous! I definitely want to make that someday. I'm glad to hear that the trim isn't too difficult...it looks a little intimidating.

    I had to frog mine but will be doing it again because I love the finished item so much.
