Hi Everyone!!

I'm happy to be part of this KAL since ScarfStyle has many, many great projects I'd like to try. I purchased the book a couple of months ago after it became obvious that it needed to be part of my library since I was constantly checking out and renewing the copy from our public library. To say the least, it is one of my favorite books and right up my alley since one piece knitting is what I do best.

My latest and greatest has been Lady E and knitting her so far has been a treat. She is knit up in Patons SWS Natural Geranium and I increased the width by two squares. I am surprised at the number of compliments this Lady has gotten so far, that it was an additional incentive to keep clicking them needles. And the pattern is so easy anyone who can knit will have no problem knitting enterlac.

    Wow, that's pretty. And I love that it is done in the Paton's.

    Its so gorgeous. I am working on my Lady E right now using Noro and I am so in love with this stole right now.

    When SWS first came out I would have used it to make Lady E but I had already bought the Noro for this project.

    And you are right, enterlac is very simple once you get hte hang of it and the right colorway will really motivate you to keep going.

    I *love* the colors! I'm knitting mine up in the Patons SWS in the Earth colorway and I'm quite enjoying it.

    Just beautiful! I used the exact same yarn, colorway and all, to make a Clapotis. It's super soft and squishy. If you want to see it mosey on over to http://giantsknitter.blogspot.com.

    How many skeins of SWS does it take to do LE?

    Every time I see that yarn in Michael's I want to knit something with it! Now I know what to knit. Your Lady E. is fabulous. I, too, would like to know how many skeins it took.

    I have been dying to try that yarn. The colorway you chose is great for that project!

    Thank you everyone for the nice comments. Fyi: this Lady took up 10-1/2 skeins w/o fringe.
