Misty Garden and Lady Eleanor (part 2)



Misty Garden is done!

I'm happy with the colors, very pretty I think. Though the picture (to me) looks like pink and purple, the yarn is actually a very nice mix of grey, peach, soft pink, and brighter pink. (Note: edited the image, I think this is closer to real life!) The yarn is Louisa Harding Kimono Angora in color #6. Size 7 bamboo circulars.

Here's a pic of my progress with Lady Eleanor, done in Noro Kureyon #150 on Addi Turbo size 10.5 (US):

    Both are looking great Steph. The colors really worked out well in the Misty Garden. Was the angora as nice to work with as Clara thought on KR?

    Hi there,
    I just bought 2 skeins of Kimono Angora in the exact same colourway, and thought Misty Garden would be the perfect pattern for it, your scarf proves me right! How many skeins did you use for it?

    I liked the kimono angora but I think I like Anny Blatt Super angora better -- less splitting. I would use it again, though.

    I used 2 skeins for the scarf, just knitted til I was almost out of yarn and at a good stopping point!
