Damask and Aunt Beast


I took Damask off the needles to see where my gauge went. We are planning i-cord tentacles for Aunt Beast from Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time. Of course, silky i-cord leads me to thoughts of eye pillows and tiny gray Aunt Beasts. It would be more perfect if she were incredibly large and could actually hold you in two of her four arms - but a little bit scary waiting for you on the couch!

one of my favorite books growing up! didn't aunt beast's fur have a fragrant scent? what shall the eye pillow smell like? for some reason i'm thinking rose geranium, or maybe roses and bergamot

Wow, Damask is quite a task! So far it's looking great!

And that Housetop quilt in your ealier post? I'm jealous! After seeing the Gee's Bend exhibit AND your example, it's time for me to make one of my own!
