Oh look, it's the fifth time I've purchased this book!

Yes, I realized today that I have now purchased "The Mists of Avalon" five times. I was thrilled to find it for a mere 5.00 today. I finally got over to our local bookshop (Powells in PDX)after trying for three days now.

I was elated at the price but also dismayed a bit. To find a favorite book selling for such a low price is a bit disheartening in a way. It's such a rich and rewarding story that it should be priced better. On the other hand, the lower price enables more to afford to discover the story. It's a dilemma that ran through my mind at the checkout counter. As you can see, I don't have alot of seriously pressing issues, I have to make up some!

Even though this is a "used" copy, I think this is going to be a "keeper". Clearly, I need to keep a copy of it.

Now, to sort out the yarn and grab a pair of #8 circs and get that shawl started up. I'm too lazy to go get my camera and take a picture of shawl/scarf from the book but there is a blog dedicated to the book "Scarf Style" at here, and here is one person's adapation of the pattern, which will give you an idea of what I'm going to attempt.
This one was knitted by Susanne from Germany. I think she did a lovely job and I can only hope mine turns out that well!

The entralac shawl is gorgeous. One of these days I will get around to knitting A Lady Eleanor for myself.

Lady Eleanor is one of knitting goals...entrelac seems like it is so much fun! I can't wait to see your progress.

Ooooh!! Entralac- so pretty. What yarn/color(s) are you going to use? I can't wait to see your progress as well :)
