Thanks so much for the online site information, meriellyn!  SO DANGEROUS!!!  I am making the similar Danica scarf and using Patons SWS and it's lovely but of course 1/3 of the way through I'm admiring other yarns already!  I was wondering whether to back it with some silky fabric, or if I have the patience to knit another colorway and then stitch the two together for a "two-sided, two-color-themed" scarf....

I am glad I began the entrelac -- up until now, I've only made potholders and "plain" scarves!  I need to learn how to knit backwards since I'm not as good at purling.

Thanks to all Craftsters for all your help and information, and most of all, for your inspiration and encouragement!

Hehe, nothing like a little enabling! Wink

Which SWS color are you using for your Danica? I used the Natural Earth colorway and it came out really pretty. I also made a Clapotis in the pink and green one. I want to make something with the blue and tan one too. I love their colors and love working with it. I'm not able to wear it agains my skin because I'm pretty sensitive but my mom can wear just about anything.

I was thinking about picking up a few skeins of Simply Soft Shadows to make another Clapotis but I was a little short on cash and the SSS has dye lots so I couldn't get some now and some later. Instead I got some regular SS and SS brights to make a blankie sized Lady E. It's going to be so obnoxious 80s looking. Hehe. I can't wait to get started! Haven't decided how large to make it yet. Luckily all the other SS colors are no dye lot so I can go back later and pick up as much as I need, $2 at a time. Smiley
I hope I can find time to start tonight. I'm excited about the burn-your-retinas bright colors! I love interesting colors. Of course I end up with no neutral accessories that way but oh well. I am determined to make a few neutral things this year, but not just yet. Wink

I wish I had taken the time to show my progress knitting Lady Eleanor, but she was finished more quickly than I had anticipated, so I'm just going to jump in with my finished Lady Eleanor.  Hope you guys don't mind!

The colors are more true-to-life in this next photo.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good..

Hey y'all....can I play?

I just cast on tonight in Noro Silk Garden #84.  It was a rocky start, but I somehow made it through the base triangles. 

I have two different dyelots.  Do you think this will make much difference with Noro?  I'm kind of worried.

warmfuzzies - I am also using Rowan Tapestry.  In your blog you said you used a size 10 needle.  I am using a size 7 and I am wondering if I should frog what I have and start over with the 10.  I love how yours came out!

klutz 91 - It is never too late to join  Cheesy  I wouldn't stress on the dye lot too much.  It isn't too important with this pattern.  If you are worried about the colors being too different, you could alternate dyel lots each row.
