Eleanor in Progress!

Here's my Eleanor after just about four balls of Patons Soy Wool Silk in Natural Earth. It's actually on ball number seven now (lost count, oops)! LOVE it!

    The colorway is really lovely and your photo staging makes me want to work in those colors on something!

    It looks beautiful! I just finished an MD scarf with Patons SWS, but in a different colorway. STill hove one more to play with. I'm not sure about the yarn though. Like it or not??? Anyway, seeing your Eleanor, it's like to get some more....hmm.

    That yarn was a great choice for this project. Looks great.

    What a great colour-way that is turning out to be. Looks very much at home against the autumn leaves.

    I really wanted to do this in Noro Silk Garden, but it was a tad out of my budget at the moment...this stuff was way cheap after 40% off coupons ($3.60/ball!!) and it's fabulous.

    I think it looks way better than Noro would, IMHO (maybe I've seen too many Noro versions of this scarf). This version looks fresh, interesting and softer.

    This is beautiful! I cant wait until I have a bit more experience *and the nerve* to start my own Lady E. Yours is spectacular!

    I forgot to ask... how many skeins did you get of the Patrons SWS for your Lady E?

    I saw that yarn in Michael's and knew it would make a beautiul Lady E! It is really gorgeous. I'm on my 9th skein of Silk Garden, having already bought it by the time I discovered the SWS. I am loving it, though.

    To answer the how many skeins question...I've been just buying a few at a time (as I get my hands on more 40% off Michaels/Joann coupons and dig $$ out of the couch coushions, car ashtray, etc...just started a new job, won't get paid for a few weeks, and I'm kinda broke). I've just finished skein #7 right now, I'm guessing it will take 9 or 10? for the body and another skein for the fringe? I can let you know how much I'm using for sure when I get closer to being finished with the body :) It is turning out kind of big--after blocking width-wise it will be about the same as the measurments in the book (I have friends doing it in Noro and theirs is coming out a little narrower), so you could easily make it narrower and use less yarn in this stuff--it is a little thicker than the Noro.

    That's a lovely soft yarn to choose for this! Thanks for the inspiration!
