Notes

I LOVE how this is turning out! Thank you Donna, for the yarn and for the suggestion!

10/28: With the help of aforementioned Donna, I decided this was too wide, and frogged it. I then started with only 5 base triangles, and it’s a much better width. It was coming out the size of a blanket (oh, why can’t I ever judge these things?), and would have used up my 8 skeins and ended up as a lovely square lap blanket, instead of a stole!

Thanks again, Donna!

11/17: This became my “knit-while-listening” project at my conference. I got quite a lot done!

After quite a looooong hibernation period, I finally finished the body of Eleanor! I plan to tinker with the fringe, since I don’t want the thing to be able wrap around me and two other people…
