I've had this pattern for awhile *photocopied from a copy of the book fromt he library  Embarrassed* I've never done etralac before so is this scarf pretty comprehensive? Or should I get some experience under my belt first?

SlickMariaVic: I've not done entrelac before either, but from what I have read everyone swears up and down that once you get the hang of it, it's easy as pie... which is a bad example because I have horrible luck with pie crusts. But I digress.  Wink

One gal said that she had to cast on and off a few times before she got it, but that after that it was smooth sailing. Overall people seem to classify it as an advanced beginner pattern. C'mon and try it with me! We'll fumble through it together.  Grin

I was thinking on the whole affordable yarn thing and remembered a clapotis someone made in their KAL. She used Caron's Simply Soft Shadows which retailed around 3 dollars a skein.
Do you think it could work for a Lady Eleanor?

I think it could work, it might produce a slightly different color change effect, but that yarn is sinfully pretty. Even if the color change is different, the colors would make a rich, vibrant Eleanor, I think. Smiley

Huzzah! That's the yarn I got (in the same colorway, I think)! I hadn't seen that before but it looks great! Oh I am so excited to get my yarn!!! *waits by the mailbox*

I tried to resist. really I did.  I've even started (and stopped) Eleanor twice inthe past because I was not happy with her.  Once I was even using the yarn specified in the pattern. It would have weighed a TON.

Now after seeing the one someone did in Patons SWS I have once again decided I MUST HAVE Eleanor.  So I bought the yarn today.  Color = Geranium.  Yummy.

I'm in!  I'm working on it for my mom for Christmas in Silk Garden #243.  It's kind of slow going since I'm also working on several other things, but I've got about a ball and a half knit. 

that's the exact color i was thinking of using!

i also gave rowan tapestry a thought.  and paton's sws.

all of them produce the same look i'm going for.  but i love silk garden so much, that i just might go for it. 

now, if i could only find it somewhere on sale....  Wink

Here's the first ball of 243 knitted up.  I wanted to order from WEBS originally, but they don't carry this colorway, so I ordered from discountyarnsale.co m, which sells it in bags of 10 for 82.50.  Unfortunately, I also had to pay Texas sales tax, but I really, really wanted 243.  It took several weeks to get here, though, since it's special order.

It's so hard to capture the colors in a picture, but the yarn is gorgeous.  The gold against the charcoal and purple is especially beautiful.  I was looking for a little more subdued colorway for my mother (who is not crazy about the bright jewel tones) and this is just perfect, except for the teal in it which I didn't notice when I was ordering.  I'm just going to cut it out because I really hate teal.  Only about half the balls appear to have it, so I should be fine.
