I have finish the lady eleanor stole two day ago Grin Grin currently on blocking. I didn't finish the 10 balls of noro, cos is getting too long, is about 74" when  I pin it down to block.. can't wait to attach the fringe, I have cut out the fringe using a cardbroad as measurement. I cut out a cardbroad on 20" ( half of the lenght) and start wrap the yarn around the card, tie on one end and cut loose on the other end, and you will have all the yarn on 20" long. so don't have to measure every string.

Congrats on finishing, Prettyknit! That is a great idea about the fringe, I'm notoriously bad about sloppy fringe measuring. Please post a pic once you attach those badboys so we can see! Even folded up it looks beautiful! Smiley

From what I can see peeking through there that looks great! And the yarn that youve wrapped around the cardboard really shows off the colors. Can't wait to see it on you.  I'm going to see if I can hunt down the book today after school.  Just curious though, if for some reason after seeing the LE pattern if I like the pattern for the entrelace stole I have already can I use that instead and join you guys?  Embarrassed I was just thinking about it and I really like the jagged border. We'll see tho I'll wait til I get the book.

Of course, dah-ling. We'll just think of it as a "intro to entrelac" KAL. Wink

I've not been able to work on mine since I posted that picture. I am going to try to work on it tonight. My goal is to go through at *least* two more skeins by the weekend and then hopefully the last two by the end of Turkey week. *crossing fingers*

Okay, I have joined ball #6! But as I am getting closer to the end (it's over 1/2 way, that's "close" in my book Grin) I am wondering about blocking. To block or not to block, that is the question!

For those gals who have finished their Lady E, if you blocked it would you recommend it? Or if you didn't block it are you happy with how it lays? I'm not sure which I want to do.  Undecided

Well I got the book the other day and decided to create a "somewhat eleanor"  I liked the pointy ends on the other pattern but the blocks were way too big and I liked the size of the individual squares on LadyE but her dimensions are insane! So I decided to go with the pointy ends but make the squares 8x16 and do 6 squares instead of 8.

I have a tendency to make things way more difficult then they need to be when I'm learning to do something, but to be honest I've found with entrelac it really doesn't matter.  For all of those intimidated to try it its really pretty darn easy.  The only thing I had problems figuring out was picking up stitches purlwise and I've since figured that out.

I'm about 3 tiers in so I'll post pics when I finish with my firt ball. I've heard of people blocking their finished pieces, but they always did so for various reasons. Either to soften the fiber,make it lay a certain way,etc. I'd say when your done if your happy with it great. Personally II'm pretty sure I'll block mine just so my ends turn out nice n' pointy! To fringe or not to fringe...that is my question.

I blocked it and it improved the look 1000%!!!  It was all lumpy and bumpy and ratty looking and now it's a smooth and fabulous WORK OF ART!  Yes, I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

I'm also glad I spent the hour and half doing the knotted fringe.  It's gorgeous.
