Completed Lady Eleanor

Tada!!!



Finally get to show Lady Eleanor off in her completed stage. In her unblocked state Lady E measures 24"x60" and I think I'll keep her like that since the size fits me well. Using size 8 needles she took 10 1/2 skeins of Paton's SWS. I decided against the fringe since the yarn ends were felting together and began looking rather nappy.

    Wow - I love the colours. I haven't fringed mine yet either as I'm not a tassle person & the beaded fringe would get caught up in my coat.

    Well done.

    Thanks everyone! I think SWS in Natural Earth would look very pretty as well.

    Oh, that is just beautiful! I love the colors - the transitions in SWS are so subtle. I love them! And at ten skeins (and much softer!), that looks like a better solution than Kureyon (I've been dying to make a Lady Eleanor for so long!)
