E is for…

Embossed Vines and Leaves

This entire stitch pattern came from http://www.patonsyarns.com/sg_kn_embossedvine/Β . There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of Eyelet stitches and it was just simpler, in this particular case, to find one online that I really liked. Matching them up with my calendar was a bit futzy.

  1. Wow…that is something I have never learned to do….how elegant your knitting is!

    Thanks for visiting my letter D post. The only thing that has worked to keep the deer out of my flower bed is a “Scarecrow” sprinkler. It turns on when it detects motion. It worked perfectly until it was stolen. Too costly to replace 😦 We have tried hair…these deer are too domesticated…they aren’t afraid of people or cars…we have used the a variation of what you suggested…the horrid smelling, fermented stuff…it works but must be reapplied diligently.

    Happy A-Z April!
