My version of the Lady Eleanor

This is my version of the Lady Eleanor, which is actually the project that made my jaw drop when viewing this book and I just had to buy the book.

I followed directions but mine did not end up as wide as the one in the book. I gifted it to one of the ladies in my knitting group because mainly, I knit the project to try the techniques, not so much because I wanted it.

I used a varigated yarn from Encore and am happy with the results. I did not do the fringe because I was frustrated with it (did this happen to anyone else?) but it turned out well because she didn't like the fringe anyway.

    I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist (well, ok, a lot of a perfectionist) and the fringe was driving me crazy unitl my husband cut me a little block of wood that I could use as a template to get the fringe spaced evenly. Worked like a charm. I tied the first row of knots and then slipped in the block of wood and tied the next row, working my way across and then did the same thing with the other rows.

    I really like what Lady Eleanor looks like with the varigated yarn. Nice.
