I have created a pattern for an entrelac baby afghan so that I couold learn entrelac and so I could use up some yarn.
Having done the first little bit, I have decided that I would have to love someone very much to knit anything entrelac, which means that when I finish this afghan I will never do that (entrelac) again.
But I did it once.
So, I am removing it from the project list and one of you can add it back if you are so inclined and so insane.

The brown in the back is pure Alpaca - undyed. It's so soft and nice that I couldn't resist. I'm going to make the Hemlock Ring blanket with it.
The gray, in front, is also undyed wool - not as soft, but very nice. I'm going to make some socks out of it.
The red is kid mohair and so soft and lovely. Gonna make a shawl out of it.

This is Elizabeth's Fiddle Faddle Angel next to the Lucybug Tiny Angel. I don't like the little angel's hair. My plan was to unply the plies, but I couldn't see them well enough. I might be able to convince a younger female to do it for me. They both need halos and the big one needs hair.

And, because I was feeling left behind by you two, I have knit three different angel washcloths - all in the same color. There is the green cotolino that Ritza sent and I might do something in that BUT
I am done.
Since Ritza is done, and I am done, and mom has had it - Now what shall we do???????????

I saw so many of these this summer that you'd think I could recreate one from memory, but I needed help. I searched the internet for a pattern cuz I was sure there weren't any patterns in my books . . . . . found pics, but no patterns.
This is the body, finished but not stuffed . . . . . the final rat is supposed to be about 9" long with a 9" tail . . . .
This is the body stuffed. I stick grocery bags inside to keep it from sticking to itself during the felting process. There is an opening in the belly that is sewn shut (woven) with dental floss. That way I can open it up and take out the bags and put in the stuffing. It's supposed to be heavy, so it needs beans or something in with the stuffing.

They are just as cute as they can be. I haven't started knitting them as I want to finish the washcloths. But as soon as I finish them, I'll have to start one or two of these. The patterns for the elfs are on light paper, but the pattern for the pixies is on dark green. Miss S said she'd give it a try, but I may need to brush up on my typing. Not to worry tho, I'll manage it somehow.
