WIP Lady E



Here is my progress so far on my Lady E. I'm using Noro SG in 208 on 4.5 mm needles. I'm not sure if I'll have enough (I bought 10 skeins) to make it the length called for in the pattern. For all those of you who've made the Lady E with these specs, how many skeins did you use? I'm sure I can make it larger during blocking, but just to be on the safe side I was curious as to how much everyone else used. Thanks!

    I used 17 to make a jumbo sized one - see photo a couple of posts back. With my gauge I would have needed to use about 13 to get the size in the pattern.

    I'm wrapped up in it right now - my office is freezing!

    One more thing - I chose not to block mine as I wanted the puffy look,

    I used ten for my Lady E and I haven't measured it at all. I knit away with nine skeins, used the tenth for fringe with half left over to go into my scrap yarn stash. It blocked out to fit me nicely and I'm a big girl (5'6", size 20).

    I used 11 -- 10 for knitting and the last one for fringe. It's very long; I could have stopped after 9 and used the 10th for fringe. Pics are posted way back in February.

    I used 9 for the knit portion also, on US8 needles, about half of another for the fringe. It blocks out beautifully and larger than you would think.

    Thanks so much everyone! It sounds like I have the perfect amount of yarn. Can't wait to finish :)

    I don't remember who did this, but someone used 10 skeins and cut the fringe before finishing up the scarf. then she used the rest of the 10th skein for the scarf. That's what I'm planning on doing, I think it'll be more then big enough with 10 skeins!

    I originally bought 11 skeins (10 to knit, the 11th for the fringe) but wigged out when I measured it after four skeins and found it was a little shorter than it was supposed to be that far in, and bought a 12th because there was only one skein left at my LYS and of course... I picked the discontinued color.


    By the time I actually hit the 10th skein (erm, yesterday), I'd managed to make it longer than it had been - go figure!

    But since I'm not a short gal (at 6' tall), and I'm not planning on blocking it, I'm going to go ahead and knit #11 and then cut the fringe on #12 and then probably doing one more repeat.
