Baba Yaga and Lace Knitting

Finally getting to the Baba Yaga in my Baba Yaga painting. I put her in a full peasant skirt and apron. It's modeled after an old picture of a Shetland knitter. Our hard-working Baba Yaga has a basket on her back, and it's yet to be filled!
I have some cotton yarn that I thought I'd knit into a some lace. This is "old shale" pattern. This yarn is really ropy and cylindrical. I'm not sure how it's going to turn out. I plan to use it as a dresser topper.
