Make Do and Mend, part 3

A few years ago, back in 2007, I bought a whole lot of Noro Silk Garden to knit a huge shawl.

The Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole

The so called entrelac technique was fun at first but quickly became boring.

I knitted about… half, I think

I finally realised I will never finish it and decided to rip it out.

Washed yarn hung up to dry

And I’m now turning it into a cardigan!

And it’s almost finished!

Happy knitting!



It quickly became too cold to wear these. But I’m sure I’ll be able to wear them again in the spring.


Simple knit and purl pattern

With proper thumb wedges, of course

They look pretty good with my grey cowl
