Lady Eleanor came into my life when I saw this and this. I fell in love and the next thing I know, I ordered this book from Amazon.com. One thing lead to another, I purchased Noro Silk Garden in Skein Scene at $6.50 per skein (if you know me, I would not have worked on this project if the yarn is at retail price.) This is my first entrelac project and it is not as difficult as it looks. If you know how to knit and purl, you can do entrelac. The only thing that bothers me is the constant turning of the project. I tried reverse knitting (aka knitting back backwards) but purling is just faster for me. My Lady E has short tassels instead of the long fringes because at 9 skeins of yarn, the stole is already a little too long for me. I do not wish my lovely lady to sweep the ground. Take a look at my lovely lady...
