Very Handy

Thanks for the comments and encouraging words about my foray into entrelac knitting.  I'll keep you all posted when I decide to start my Lady E. For those who said that they are afraid to try entrelac, all I can say is if I can do it...you definitely can!  Here are some links to the  handy tutorials that helped me. First I used this one (you will need to sign up but it's free)--it was originally printed in Interweave Knits and it's good. But then I decided to start over and use this one, because the stitch pattern here more closely mirrors the one in the Lady E pattern.

Speaking of handy things, I am playing along with a request from Lori on Thrums to show a picture of my hands.  Since I took this picture myself, it's only one hand, but it's doing one of my favorite things...petting Willow's soft head.

oh! I love this! There's just something special about seeing hands in motion, and this picture made me relax and remember petting my own golden retriever, Niles. Thank you for playing along!

I bet that dog is smiling! Reminds me of my Zora. :)

Learning Entrelac knitting is on my to do list... Kinda been putting it off. I'll check your links. Thanks!

I saw you visited my blog and saw my sweet pups, so I thought I would visit yours too! It's always good to find other dogs lovers. I love the face they give you when you pet them ... unconditional love!
