Yum yum. I finished Lady E last week and have worn it every day since (well, the days I’ve gone out). I was worried it would be too bulky to wear as a scarf, but it’s been fine – nice and warm! Easy and fast knitting; I knit backwards in both tiers! That was kind of fun.
I decided to go with the fringe in the book, but modified it a bit – instead of just folding the lengths in half, I folded them in half twice before attaching. This left 1/2 the length of tail that they called for, and I only did 3 rows of knots. This way I get a more substantial fringe (I found the one in the book to look a little scraggly) and shorter so it’s less likely to catch on things!
I just love the big dramaticness of it all. I’m glad I went with a more subdued colour; I don’t think I could pull off one of those really bright colourways!
