Lady Eleanor in Paris!

I had intended to finish her for the Knitting Olympics but that didn't happen! I'm only two days short but stil... I finished Lady E last night while hanging out with my cat and my husband, we watched a terrible horror flick on the the TV which helped me to finish Lady E faster.

Here she is in all her glory:

FO: Lady Eleanor

The colors are not that bright, just happened to have a patch of sun light shining in the apt this morning, thankgoodness she's not a technicolor goddess, I probably would have gifted her otherwise. The last two pics are pretty true to her elegant self.

She even makes bedhead look good:
