Started Lady Eleanor


She is about 1/3 done..I am on tier 12 now. I am using Noro Kuryeon #92. I ordered the yarn from Purl Soho at an excellant price. I am not in love with the colors but it is growing on me. I was torn between this color and color #150. I couldn't find a good pic of color #150 so went with the 92. I have since seen color 150 in person and think I would have been much happier with that.

But anyway, I am sure it will work just fine to curl up in front of the fire in snowy upstate NY this winter :-)

    Lovely! Is this the first time you have done entrelac -- did you find it difficult to do?

    Lady E is on my 'to do' list and I'm thinking of using Kureyon or Silk Garden. Right now I'm 3/4 done on Vintage Velvet.

    Can't wait to see it modeled!

    Hi Rose,
    I have done entrelac before. I did two market squares bags and enjoyed doing them. Entrelac is really easy, just tedious. Some people learn to knit back when doing entrelac but I don't mind turning the piece around.

    If you can knit, purl, pick up stitches and knit or purl 2 tog, you can do entrelac.:-)
