Announcing ...... Lady Eleanor

Lady Eleanor has been OTN it seems forever but has finally been cast off, washed & blocked.

DD enjoyed her photoshoot & had fun swirling around as DH clicked away.

Yarn used: Noro Silk Garden shade 232
Amount of yarn used: 6 1/2 50g balls without a fringe.
Needle size: 5mm
Pattern from Scarf Style edited by Pam Allen
Dimensions pre blocking: 37cm x 107cm
Dimensions post blocking: 43cm x 139cm.
Started: 10th May 2006
Finished: 8th August 2006

I enjoyed the pattern but my disaster with the yarn early on in the project tainted it for me. I haven't added a fringe yet as I'm not sure which type I want if any. I know that I don't want standard tassels like a scarf & am not sure regarding a knotted fringe or a beaded knotted fringe so for now it's staying as it is.

    Your LE is beautiful! I do think it needs some adornment on the ends, though. This site led me to your blog, which led me to the Rowanette site. I've been all over the place and back. Good work!

    It's very beautiful! I'm glad you didn't let the yarn tragedy spoil this project.
