hmmm.... at the rate I'm going, 50 tiers would take about 14 balls of yarn, and it's the same yardage as the Silk Garden.  I must be knitting with smaller needles or something. What size did you use? I'm using 5.5 mm.

I'm at my six ball now, I use 4.5mm needle and is way passed 34 tier.  Did anyone know how many ball should I reserve for the knotted fringe?? Huh

According to the instrusctions in the book you need to cut 52 pieces of yarn, 40" each. So that's 2080", which is roughly 173', which is roughly 57 yards. One ball of Rowan Tapestry is like 131 yards, so I'll need a little under 1/2 of a skein.

I THINK my math is right, but someone double check ... I'm an English major for a REASON. Grin

I used about 1/2 a ball - I cut my strings before finishing my lady, so i knew when i should stop. i also ended up cutting them off after a couple of days because I found the effect too "drama teacher" as some blogger described it.

ok..I think I would cut the fringe when I left two balls, just to incase I don't have enough. Does it hang too long? I mean 40" look pretty long for me.

Personally I think netted fringe is absolutely gorgeous, because it continues the pattern so nicely. Prob takes less yarn too.
like that!

Wow, all these Eleanors are turning out beautiful!

Nymeria, I love how the Rowan Tapestry is turning out. Is that color174 (rustic)? How much yarn do you think you'll end up using? And what size needles are you knitting it up on?

Still working on Christmas stuff myself,  Roll Eyes so right now I'm knitting Eleanor vicariously through you all.

It is the Rustic color (the green, pink and oyster purple grabbed me), and I am not 100% certain how much I'll end up using, but I have a feeling it'll be around 9-10 for the body and then another 1/2 skein for the fringe. I'm on the 3rd ball atm, hopefully I'll get to at least ball 5 or 6 by the weekend. I am using size 8 needles; the pattern calls for 10.5, but the Tapestry is a smaller gauge than the yarn they use. For awhile I was having a *major* blonde moment and could not figure out why everyone's Eleanor was wider and the blocks were larger than mine ... d'oh!
