I have recently fallen for some Noro. I think I will have to buy some more and make a complete one. It will be wonderful!

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

cananarysanctuary, that looks beautiful! 

I've just attached the 8th ball out of the 10 I bought.  This thing is sucking my will to knit right out of me.  It's a Christmas gift, so I can't even ignore it for a couple of weeks.  I'm going to finish up this ball and steam it to see how much length I can get that way.  Originally I didn't want to block at all so that it would keep the very rustic feel, but I think it needs a little more drape (plus it would mean less knitting).  I'm still undecided on fringe.

Those colors are great, canarysanctuary.  It looks beautiful.  I can't wait to start mine (but I have to finish all these silly presents first).

Thank you all so much!  It's just finished drying this morning, and I crocheted the edging along the ends.  Now to fringe!  (I've never made fringe this intricate before, so I hope it turns out alright).

wootwoot, I hear ya.  It was sucking the will to knit out of me too!  I'm so glad I stopped at the end of my 9th ball.  It was getting rather, uh, cumbersome.  Entrelac may be pretty, but it's BORING! (after the first couple of rows, of course!)

Can't wait to see everyone else's!  It's always so cool to see how the self-striping yarns alter each person's Lady E and make each one of them so beautiful and unique!

I am DONE with the knitting!  I ended up using 8 balls plus part of a 9th.  However, I cut out all the teal, so I probably used more like 7 balls.  My mom is only 5'2" so I didn't want it to be obnoxiously long.  Plus I think I will gain quite  a bit of length when I steam it.  I think I'm going to add fringe, but not the kind in the book (though it's very pretty).  I'm thinking just some smallish twisted tassels or something. 

This means that I may be able to finish other Christmas presents as well!

Does steaming work well? And is it one of those little clothing steamers? Smiley

I just finished steaming it not too long ago and it worked very well.  I hung it over a hanger, misted both sides with a spray bottle and blasted it with steam from the iron while I stretched and smoothed it to my liking.  I'd like to buy a really nice steamer at some point, but an iron will do the job. 

I didn't want to do a wet block for this because I was worried about losing too much of the bumpiness of the blocks (and also steaming dries much much faster).  The steam relaxed the stitches so that it grew longer and became drapier, but there's still a definite woven sort of texture. 

I'm about halfway done attaching the fringe now and should hopefully have pictures tomorrow.
