Come to Me, My Sweet Lady E!




Lady Eleanor is finished, and I am in love! This is destined to become one of my favorite shawls. It was a pleasure to knit. The pattern is much more well written than other entrelac patterns I have seen, and I was in heaven, using all of my favorite colors.


Pattern: Lady Eleanor by Kathleen Power Johnson

Yarn: Silk Garden by Noro, 12 skeins, colors 244 and 249

Needles: KnitPicks Options size 8 circular, 32-inch

Dimensions: Length - 74-1/2 inches

Width - 24 inches

Modifications: Used a crochet edging on the short ends instead of fringe

    Trish, this is simply gorgeous. I love the colorway of two noros and your site really does it justice. Glad you posted many pics of it. Well done.

    It's just beautiful, and what great pics! The Noro blocks like a dream - and softens up significantly - doesn't it?

    Very. Well. Done.

    Well, you did a very good job. I like your colour-choice very much - the colours are so naturally and your fringe is wonderful, too.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful picture.

    Stunning! Great work - very inspiring. The cat is pretty special too (I have a soft spot for grey kitties!)
