First of all, here's Lady E in all her splendor:
Knit with Noro Kureyon, 13 skeins (I wanted it longer), in color #138. The colors are a bit more muted in real-life. I also wanted a unique fringe of some sort, and I didn't want tassels or pompoms or anything "loose". In looking at the entrelac, and how it seems to weave under & over, I thought: "I-cord!" and proceeded to make 28 little strands of i-cord, tacking them at the points, overlapping them & tacking at the overlap & weaving in a bunch of ends. It's not exceptionally precise, or blocked even, but I like how it looked. There are a couple more pictures over on my Flickr account, you can click through to that via the photos.
Close-up of the i-cord:
My next project from the book is Vintage Velvet - I started it last Monday, and basically couldn't put the scarf down - so now, the knitting's done! I need to felt it and it will be finished. I used 6 skeins of Touch Me in yummy purple.
Sorry for the long post, but it's nice to be here & I look forward to seeing & making more from this book!
