Lady Eleanor, but No Gold!
Lady E. Is the perfect project--the pattern was perfectly written, the yarn was a perfect match for the pattern, the process was enjoyable, and the product is stunning. I used every bit of the ten skeins (Noro Silk Garden, #201/size 7s), and had I had another skein in the stash, I might have just used that one, too! While this was my Knitting Olympics Project, I fell short of gold with half a skein to go and one edge to fringe--so I finished it the next day, blocked it (this worked really well: wet towel on the ironing board, Lady E. on the wet towel, pillowcase on Lady E. and then iron with steam!!) and wore it to the airport to pick up my darling from his trip. So I felt victorious on may fronts beyond the Olympics.
