"Mini" Lady Eleanor

Hello All! Here is a progress picture of my "Mini" Lady Eleanor Stole. I don't have enough of this yarn, Patons SWS, to make the full size version so I casted on 24 vs 56 sts for a scarf size version. It's looking like it will be about 10in wide. That's a little wider than I prefer but, I will keep going since this is good practice and I want to make the full size stole with Silk Garden as soon as my wallet permits. I do have 3 skeins of Silk Garden #205 in my stash...I think I may try using it and cast on 16 sts. It should be around 6 - 7 in, judging by the width of this one and 3 skeins should be enough for a scarf this way.

    Lovely! I have 14 balls of Silk Garden Light that is waiting for Lady E as well as some Kuryeon that is being knit up at the width you are doing, but it will be felted into a steering wheel cover for an art car.

    Noro is a thing of beauty all around.

    I love SWS and made scarfs and hats for Christmas last year with the same pink/green and plum(yum yum)!

    I was waiting to see someone do this with Paton's SWS and was wondering how heavy it comes out? Tell us more as you get going on it!
