Finally Fringed

Arrow Thin Left Icon

I've had the Lady Eleanor finished for three years now, but for some reason I'd never done the fringe.  I originally put on all the fringes, but never tied them because I thought it was too much fringe.  I took out half the fringe and thought I'd put beads on the remaining strands and resurrect my 70s macrame fetish. Then I read that someone had gone the macrame route and that the square knots were unstable (oh yeah, forgot about that part).  So on Earth Day I sat in the shop and tied the stupid overhand knots.  I only did half as many as the pattern called for, but I think more would have been too many. I'm really happy with it now.  Maybe I need a cotton Lady Eleanor for the summer...
