Ou est la partie?

Lady Eleanor rolls into gay Paris a week late and wonders where the cheers are? Surely the crowds that welcomed those cyclists last Sunday want to give a round or two of applause for her in all her magnificence? Clearly they know nothing about being fashionably late.
Isn't she fabulous darlings?
Pattern: Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole from Scarf Style
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden - assorted colourways
Needles: 4.5mm circular needle
Started: June 2007
Finished: 2 August 2009Just love everything about this, except that it's too warm to wear it right now!! I've left it unblocked as I love the texture of the entrelac both back and front. I've had dilemmas along the way about how to change colourways etc but I like the two contrasting halves and I think the only thing I would do differently would be to hold over a little of the first colourway to add in to the fringe. Oh and knit it faster, I really did enjoy knitting this - gift knits, flashy new projects, startitis all conspired to keep Lady E down but thank goodness that a little French inspiration got her to to the top of the list.

And the photo shoot - out-takes?

Mais oui:
Here Lady E was mistaken and thought that she had to help direct the traffic away from the cyclists. Oh and is that a cat creeping in to shot?
That is so much more interesting to photograph isn't it?
I did wonder whether I was even going to get to wear her as my photographer seemed to find her rather fetching:

Lady E est tres belle!

I don't usually block my entrelac, either. I like the poufs!

Great job.

And yet again - loving the out-takes.

This is amazing. I really love the scarf. It's also quite good as a man's scarf too, isn't it?
Love the kitty cat photo. BTW, have I e-mailed you about Furry Fridays? Let me know if I haven't. Would love to interview you :D
Has the weather been nice over the weekend? We had a wonderful sun on Sunday so I managed to knit some lacy shawl :D Very satisfying!

oh she looks absolutely fantastic! What a gorgeous finished piece she is. You and RoseRed have both made such gorgeous Lady E shawls, I simply must have one next winter.

The race is over, but I'm cheering for you from Canberra!

Huzzah! Huge round of applause! She's divine!

I really like the contrasting ends - very interesting. I kinda wish I hadn't blocked mine, the poufiness is very attractive.

Wow! This is stunning! Did you learn to knit backwards for all that entrelac?
