Elli is a Crone Goddess, personifying old age and wisdom. But Elli also holds a secret strength that defeats the mighty Thor. You see, Thor underestimated this sweet old woman and agreed to arm wrestle her as a test of strength. Elli won the match, and later Thor found out her secret: no one can defeat old age. Elli’s clever wisdom won over brute strength, showing that age doesn’t equal frailty. Older women carry with them a lifetime of knowledge, experience and inner strength.
This shawl may look like a ‘granny shawl’ to the uninitiated, but a closer look shows practical knowledge paired with creative life experience. Garter stitch gives extra warmth with its insulating ridges, and it is knit with the warmth and softness of merino, mohair and silk. The Crone knows this will keep the wearer warm and cozy. The lace section demonstrates strength of mind and weaving of webs as the crone shares her knowledge with her community in a beautiful combination of stitches.
