Lindisfarne – Lady Eleanor – Live

I adore these yarn cakes, as I wound each one of them I stopped and admired it’s beauty, not just colour but texture too. Lady Eleanor and I have started out as great friends. I found her in Scarf Style and over on Ravelry where she has been taunting me for ages! I am hooked! I can’t wait to see what the next block will turn out like! I am also doing the purling backwards so I don’t have to keep turning my work. That was slow to do at first but now I think I can go as fast backwards as I can forwards, well worth learning that technique.
The last yarny photo is of some gorgeously soft and silky Camelspin and some just as beautiful but not quite as soft Seawool both bought from Socktopus

Music means a lot to me…I started the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole and this song kept going round in my head….ahhhh the ’70s. I was just getting it together in the 70s, got married in 74, had a baby in 75 and another in 79. Thought I was too old to have fun by then, I so ached to go out and dance. I am making up for it now though, I am having loads of fun but maybe not too much dancing.

    I have given you an award over on Taoknitter2…go get it! xoxoxo

  14. Beautiful colour choice for your Lady E. Hope you enjoy knitting her as much as I did.Loved the Lindisfarne clip – there was more to them than Fog on the Tyne. I left school in 1979 with a head full of The Clash, Elvis Costello and blue velvet Dr Marten boots and huge mohair jumpers I made myself – I’ve calmed down a bit since!

    I love the pics documenting the Lady E in progress…the colourway is also very pretty, but then again it’s Noro 🙂 I look forward to seeing the FO.I did not know the song in the clip…when I first saw the name and the pattern, I had to think of Eleanor of Aquitaine…and still do! I am really obsessed with the Middle Ages, LOL!
