ETA: This is all of yesterday's progress. It doesn't look like much but it's truckin' right along! it's really hard to get a true representation of the colors I'm using, but this kinda gives you an idea. The flash makes the yarn look much shinier than it is.

Oh that looks beautiful, Koshare! It has a very "romantic" look to it. I'm about to join my second ball of yarn. Smiley

MMMmmm that SWS is sooo pretty! Im sure its heavenly soft too. The 40% coupon thing is a good idea and I am on the Joanne's mailing list plus Michael's puts out coupons in the paper every other week or so.

I really want to make this, and I can't decide between Noro Silk Lite in color 2013:



or Rowan tapestry in Pot Pourri


the noro is more subtle than the photo and the silk gives it a nice halo in browns, purples and greys.  the tapestry is so nice to touch, and knits up beautifully....

What do you guys think?

Oh wow, that is a tough call -- they are both gorgeous yarns. I can say that I am really enjoying using the tapestry yarn because it's very, very soft and knits up beautifully. Of course Noro always knits up nice too.

It's tough because I think both yarns would produce an equally attractive piece! I think it boils down to one question: Do you want a cooler (color-wise) Eleanor with the Noro or a warmer (color-wise) Eleanor? Me, personally, I am grabbed by that Tapestry color, but I typically lean towards warmer colors like that. What I usually do when I'm torn between yarns is that I lay them side by side, away from other yarns and close my eyes for about 20 seconds. When I open my eyes whichever yarn grabs my focus first is the one I use. Hope that (kinda) helps!

I like the silk garden color Wink, but of course Rowan will be softer than Noro. I use Noro Kureyon, it feel a bit coarse..just have to cross my finger it will go softer after wash.

So now I'm at the point where I have to start thinking about how big I'm going to make this.

I still have a ways to go, only on tier 25, but I'm thinking I need to do more than the specified 34 tiers since my yarn (and therefore my gauge) is smaller. 

Do I really want it to be 70 inches? That's big!  And I'll probably need more than the 11 balls of yarn I bought....
