Lady E

January 13, 2006

I gave in and started another new project (because the 10-odd projects I had going just weren’t doing it for me) After a good week of knitting at night, at work, in cafes, I give you Lady Eleanor (10 tiers). Silk Garden, colorway 224, on US 9 needles (as opposed to the US 10.5 the pattern calls for). I’m concerned about the yardage on this – I’ve gone through almost 3 balls and only managed 10 tiers – I have 7 balls left for the remaining 25 tiers. It seems….close. But I’m loving how the varigated colors work into the blocks. One of my nannying charges was convinced I was switching yarn each time – eech – too many ends to weave in!

    That is turning out beautiful!! I love the purples! In terms of yarn, my Lady E seems to have alot of stretch, so I am crossing my fingers that blocking will help the size.
