Mostly Gray

First off, thanks to everyone for your incredibly kind comments on Don's sweater. I'm in a little knitting slump after finishing it, and have had a hard time deciding on my next project. Finally started off with Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style yesterday. The yarn is the same handdyed Australian wool that I've used recently for the Basketweave Throw, but in a blue-grayish shade that fits in perfectly with Project Spectrum 2.0's February/March theme.


It's my first time doing entrelac, and whilst the first couple of tiers have been fun, I'm just not sure if I'll remain interested for another 15 more tiers. We'll see.

I've wanted to make that shawl too. It looks so complicated. I can't wait to see how yours turns out.

The pattern seems complicated, but the colour is nice. Hope to see the FO sooner. By the way, do u receive my email about the dyeing workshop of Cloth Haven ?

Beautiful! I have started Lady E too and just like you, I also worry whether I have the preserverence to complete it! Good luck!

Pretty pretty! Don't finish this one too fast; I'd love to see how it's knit at the next meetup. :-)

The yarn looks lovely, seems to have a bit of sheen to it. And the colour changes work very well for the entrelac. Hopefully you will like it enough to continue :)

This yarn is so soft and LE is looking great. Actually I've been thinking of making one too with the blue/green yarn Marjorie gave me.

Ooh, Lady Eleanor looks fabulous in those subtle grays! I found the entrelac completely addicting, but I can see how you would find it tedious. Anyway, it'll be a very impressive FO.

the colour combination is just beautiful!

I haven't done entrelac, but Eunnyjang's entrelac socks in the new IK might just do it for me.

please share where you got the wool, those shades are delicious.
