Lady Eleanor Inspiration
I love both of these books. I turn every page and want to knit each one. I finally settled on starting with a scaled-down version of lady eleanor. I wanted to learn the technique before launching on such a large project, so I used yarn from my stash - Noro Silk Garden color 87. I used three skeins. I like most of the colors but am not too crazy about the one square of yellow. How does that happen when they are all the same color and lot number? Oh, well. It has personality.
For my next knit, I am thinking of trying to do something with lace and am eyeing two patterns, one from each of the books. I have never knit a "real" lace pattern before, so hopefully I won't be in too far over my head. Wish me luck, and I'll keep you all posted!
