Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole
Have you guys made the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole from Scarf Styles? If so, what yarn did you use? I'm leaning heavily toward Noro's Silk Garden, maybe Noro Kureyon, or Karaoke; I just can't make up my mind....any thoughts?

My SP7 made one during the knitting olympics, with Silk Garden if I recall correctly. She also started a second one out of Noro Shinano...

here are pictures:

and here's where she blogged about it: (starts near the bottom of the page)

They're really stunning.

LOL, I've look @ the Scarf Style kal a dozen times & the more I look the more indecisive I become :rollseyes:
I love, love both colorways that your friend used, Julie...the Spring Garden colorway is discontinued & the I can't tell what the shinano colorway is
decisions....decisions...decisions :rollseyes:
This is part of my anniversary gift from Lonnie & I hope to narrow the selection down a bit but don't know if it's possible...I like too many yarns to decide; still leaning toward the Spring Garden, though :D Now I must decide on the colorway...perhaps I'll wait until we go OOT, I would hate to decide on an absolute fave & the LYS not have it.
So....Lady Eleanor will definitely be added to my very long project list
