I am so in love with this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=103630.0 and fig&plum's version.

the book is waiting for me at the library and i bought 10 skeins of silk garden (239) yesterday, so i will be casting on in the next couple of days (if i can abandon the two other projects i have on the go without too much guilt).

anyone want to come and play?

i started this a few months ago using SWTC Karaoke, but the yarn kept breaking, so i got fed up and frogged it

i just started it again in Noro Kureyon 148 and am loving it

I loved her version too.  However, I can't seem to find a similarly-striping yarn in my price range (read: cheap).  I love the versions in Karaoke I've seen, but even that is too much. 

jelly71, did you try just spit-splicing (remember that the spitting portion is entirely optional) the yarn together?

no, i just got so irritated, that i didn't want to deal with it any more

in 2 skeins, the yarn broke about 5 times - the thought of continuing with 8 more skeins just overwhelmed me

i am loving the Noro Kureyon 148 - not my usual colors at all (normally i am all about the purples and the pinks) but i like that it has a touch of pink and purple in it

I'm in!  I started Lady Eleanor last week.  I'm not that far in.  I believe I'm on the 3rd tier of rectangles.  It's such an interesting pattern.  I will post pictures of my progress when I get a chance.  I'm using Noro Silk Garden in shade 205.

oh yay! i've been so obsessed with this - i love love love this pattern and am cruising right along. i've been doing about 3 or 4 tiers a night so i should been done in a couple of weeks!

also, i've been feeling a bit woozy over how much i spent on this, but the other day i priced the yarn it suggests in the pattern - $360!!! i feel better about the sg. i think i might use kureyon for my next one.

Count me in too.  I have actually been working on this project on and off for the past month, but could use the encouragement that a KAL entails so that I actually finish it.  I am using Noro Kureyon in colorway 124 on size 8 needles.  I decided to use this needle size, along with a smaller cast on, so that i get more of a scarf than a shawl. 

Other than those adjustments, I have been following the pattern as written, and am loving the results.  I even learned to knit backwards, which makes this project go even faster.  Plus, the constantly changing colors of the Noro yarn make for interesting knitting.  Right now, I am onto ball #3 of 9.  Pictures on my blog (http://knitspurlscurls.blogspot.com)

I started on this last week with Noro Silk Garden 217. I love the pattern and yarn combingation and cannot wait to finish it. I just finished knitting the fourth ball - 5 more to go. Will attempt to post a picture later.
