I love my Lady!


It turned out so soft and I love the colors. It's Noro Silk Garden color #88, I finished the body at 9.5 balls of yarn, I just have to crochet and make the fringe.

It was so much fun to knit and I even learned how to knit backwards so I didn't have to turn my work almost at all 2/3 of the way through it. It moved MUCH faster that way. This was my first Entrelac project and the first knitted project I've ever kept for myself. I can't wait to wear it. I have the yarn ready for another Backyard Leaves, Misty Garden, and Shetland Triangle. I just can't get ahead of myself.

I'm wondering about the crocheting, is it necessary or is it just to give it a finished look with the knotted fringe? I haven't really been able to see any close ups online of the fringe with the crocheted edge.

Thanks!

    Very nice!!! I've finished the body of mine as well, now it is in a holding pattern waiting for the fringe. Looking forward to hearing about that from someone who has completed Lady E...

    Your Lady E is beautiful! I just started the sixth skein on mine and I'm thinking about practicing that knitting backwards thing. This pattern is so hyptnotic I just can't put it down.

    The pattern is awesome! As for the crocheted edge, I think it's to give it a finished look and it helps a bit when you're putting the fringe on, but I think it's by no means neccessary.
    Can't wait to see it done!

    I love it! I have the same colorway, #88, in my stash waiting to be knit up as the same project. Yours makes me want to hurry up and start!
