Lady E Purgatory
Ok, OK, here is the self portrait with Lady E Joan mentioned yesterday. She has grown by several more tiers (tears?) since taken and I HOPE to be finished with this godforsaken thing by this weekend. She really is a pretty thing, nice & soft, cozy on my lap. I know she will be a wonderful warm wrap......but I'm telling you now....entrelac....on this scale anyway....has a snooze factor of about 8/10!
Even Pearl thinks so!
This old sled and deer antler combo leans against the wall next to the front door. I think they look like a pair of midwife's hands poised for baby catching!
Happy knitting......hoping the next LE photo will be the finished product! I have some wonderful Noro Silver Thaw from the Marvelous Little Knits ( my now 2nd favorite on line yarn shop.....go visit..their sales and customer service are amazing). Would you believe that not only did they research out a way to ship to Alaska that was less than half their usual shipping venue, but the owner actually CALLED me when there was a credit card issue (wrong exp. date entered) to clear things up. Elann.com has been my very very favorite for years....but Susie at Little Knits....like I told you yesterday.....your shop just shot to the top of the list! And speaking of Elann.com......did you see the Araucania they offered Monday? Gorgeous handpainted yarny goodness. I snagged 3 different colorways-mmmmmmm...cannot wait til it gets here!
