canary:  you'll be happy to know i have just started a mini lady E with some silk garden my mom had in her stash!  i think it's color 243.  i made a hat with it that i really don't like, so i may unwind it and use it in this.  i think i cast on 40 stitches instead of 56. 

everyone was right!  as soon as you get started on entrelac, it's so easy....and addicting! 

i should have some progress shots soon.

thanks for the encouragement, ladies!

Crazy, isn't it? Sooo much fun once you get it down and it's definitely one of those things that as soon as you start it makes sense. I love to see all these Lady E's! Keep up the shinies! Grin

i've completed 3 hanks of the noro I got.



It has a white haze to it from the angora that isn't showing in the image... its reminding me alot of the environment here in Vancouver...like a rainy winter day. The beach, the trees, the mountains and the ocean.

Cheesy I love how Noro works so well for entrelac!

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

Here's the start of my Lady E.  I'm using Paton's SWS in Natural Geranium.  But now after seing all of the lovely Lady E's done with Noro, I wish I had spend the extra money and bought some Noro to make my scarf.

Here's my 'never ending' Lady Eleanor... this is after 4 skeins of yarn and I had just added my 5th skein.

iheartmyTHO: Aw, the Geranium is beautiful. Smiley I am doing that color too for my "Baby Eleanor" scarf. Here's my progress so far:


The colors are really nice, right up there with Noro, I think. Not that I wouldn't have liked to use Noro, too. Smiley I kind of like the extra silk-like sheen the soy gives the yarn.

artteacher: wow, that's nice!

Lil,
Thanks!   Cheesy  It has been so much fun to see each section turn a different color!  I was even knitting it on the subway/train last week (I live in Korea) and I noticed everyone watching me-- I'd like to think that it was the beauty of the yarn.. not that this 'strange American' was knitting on a train!  Cheesy

The colors are quite washed out- because I used a flash.

Yours is looking wonderful too!  I think each and every one of these is just a piece of knitted art.

artteacher - what brand and colorway is that yarn, it is beautiful!!

I am about to jump into this project.  I have ordered some Rowan Tapestry in the PotPouri colorway.  It should be here soon, I can hardly wait  Cheesy  I have made some Danica scarves, so I am familiar with the pattern and completely addicted!

Bixby2,
I'm an American living in Seoul, Korea and I bought the yarn here.  However, it is yarn inported from: Switzerland    The brand name is: Lang Yarns, Mille Colori color #984   It's a wool/acrylic blend.

It looks like a rainbow of the blues/greens/purples/pinks all blended together.  I love the color too.  It's so soft and the yarn doesn't split and knits up easy.  Some of the colors are even tweedy mixes of 2 colors that are used individually in the colors.

You might be able to find the yarn imported to the states?  I hope that this helps some?? 

I did a search and apparently they do sell LANG YARNS in the states- however, they apparently do change the names of the yarns when it's imported- but, I did find that on the LANG YARNS website you can go to the actual website in Switzerland and here is the link for my yarn- the yarn that I have doesn't have the bring 'orangy' color that is showing on the photo- mine is a slightly different colorway (a little more subdued- but, they were selling the exact one in the photo on their website)  http://www.langyarns.ch/index.php?SC=mydb&db_name=Herbst_Winter&fl=107
