Lady E...

I've been holding out on you... I've started knitting the Lady Eleanor entrelac stole on Christmas day. I bought 10 balls of Noro Kureyon (color 124) on sale at Little Knits and have been waiting for the perfect pattern for it. The only pattern I really liked was from a pattern book I did not have and necessitated an additional yarn purchase. Hmmm. I'm all for buying more yarn, but thought that maybe I should just play with what I already owned. Of course, I had seen the Lady E pattern, but when I saw that Fig and Plum was knitting it in Noro Silk Garden, I clicked immediately: I have the yarn! The pattern is pretty! Jillian started a KAL! What am I waiting for!

This pattern is addictive: you just want to make one more square, wait for one more color change... In order to make sure that I didn't run out of steam on this project, I decided to take a picture after each ball of yarn knitted. That way, I made a "flip-through" type of photo booklet. This really helped! Here it is:

After 2 balls:
2.dec 31

After 3 balls:
3. jan 2

After 4 balls:
4. jan 4

After 5 balls:
5. jan 8

After 6 balls:
6. jan 9

After 7 balls:
7. jan 10

After 8 balls (look: fringe!):
08. jan 14

After 9 balls:
09. jan 15

I used the 10th ball for just a couple of tiers and all that fringe and.... voila!
finished lady E
