Why it's Elspeth Elizabeth!! Elsbeth is a lady of un certain age who is a creative writer and dresses as befits a lady poet. She knits her own angora scarves (my favorite kind) in off beat colors which she wears to poetry readings. She is rarely frivolous, but does indulge her penchant for sherbet lemon sweets. Elspeth Elizabeth still believes in la grande passion and awaits it with beating heart. (an excerpt from the history of Elspeth Elizabeth)
As some of you may have guessed, Elspeth comes to me from across the pond, made with love by Jane Brocket. I am an avid reader of her blog, which is full of wit, charm, wonderful recipes and some of the nicest pictures in blog land.
Can you guess what it was about Elspeth that caught my eye? Why it is her lovely orange angora scarf. How could a Woolen Rabbit, who adores orange and angora pass her by??
Thanks Jane.........she is lovely!! She is right at home with a few of my other ladies ;-)
Now, some of us have been very productive knitters lately and I am in awe of the items being accomplished. Myself, I am still struggling to get caught up with my bloglines, and I am going away to Atlanta this weekend........eekk....... I. will . NEVER . get . caught . up!. Such a dilemma..........do I read all of the fabulous work you are all getting done, or do I just give it up and get some knitting done?? As much as I love blog surfing, I have to admit, that sometimes it seriously affects my productivity, but I just can't help myself. So many wonderful stories........and lovely finished objects.
Needing a quick finished object fix, I set down behind my trusty Robin wheel and finished the last of this yummy Spinner's Hill roving that I purchased 2 years ago in Rhinebeck. It is destined to become my next favorite vest ;-) Ahh........I just LOVE this color!
