My Lady E

One more Lady Eleanor. I haven't seen one I haven't liked, everyone has done such a beautiful job, and each picture makes me want to do another.
The specs:
1. Noro Silk Garden alternating rows between colours 211 and 225 on US size 9 needles.
2. Embarrassed to admit it - I used 17 skeins, most from E-Bay and a 40% off sale.
3. Never one to follow a pattern as written, I made this one 25% larger than specified - in the width.
4. Instead of woven fringe on the short ends, I crocheted the long edge and added fringe a la Charlotte's Web.
5. Not wanting to crush the three dimensional woven look, I decided not to block it. Besides I wouldn't want to subject it to our murky water right now.
6. Start to finish time, about eight weeks, a leisurely pace. More photos of the process on my blog: http://lifesastitch.typepad.com

    This is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen! It inspires me to get over my fear of entrerlac and do it already! Now I just have to find a pattern for an afghan like this one. Wow, I am blown away! Gorgeous!
