Lady Eleanor, Goes On and On......

Am I the last one in the world who's still knitting 'Lady Eleanor'?

The Entrelac pattern is so addictive, I think I will just go on and on and on...

Let's fly away......

Teacup Fairy... er...A Modern Version

Whether a mug, cup, or kettle
They plant blooms wherever they settle.
It could be a jar, a box or a shoe.
All we discard, they magically renew.
They use roses and daisies and violets too,
To make fairie treasures for me and for you.

The top and the skirt were knitted with Knitty's 'Blythe Gear' pattern.

The blank face gives her more plasticity.

A Childhood Dream

I didn't have many dolls when I was a little girl (dolls didn't interest me all that much then).

But my parents did give me a lovely baby doll with red dress, which had curly hair, and could close her eyes while lying down. She didn't have a name, but I still have the vague memory of sleeping with her company.

Thanks for the tiny Blythe, the sweet memory trigger...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things
