No no no. Nothing is falling except snow.

Here is a new pattern! Had loads of fun designing and knitting on my snow day!

Pattern: London Ridge Beret – Ravelink’d!
Yarn: Red Heart Soft Solid in Grape, 1 skein
Needles: set of 5 US#6 dpn

I still have three patterns to write up, pdf, and get them ready for the world. The three troublemakers; Riphraph Mitts, Snowden, and Northwoods Lodge Mittens.


I awoke to little nips and kneadings as the younger of the two cats, Greyfell, took up the habit of nursing / suckling. It started as cute cat paws on the backs of my legs but ended up as eager attempts to actually nurse my elbows. Greyfell is now at the age that Kefir began nursing “Panda” (which is a stuffed animal of mine that I would sleep with religiously). Greyfell has chosen a soft fuzzy blue blanket in which I sleep with instead of Panda. It must be my scent on these items. Ah, to study the regression habits of cats is an interesting hobby.

As far as knitting goes I have decided that the Fibonacci hat will be too short and need to rip back a few rows for adjustment. I have plenty of yarn and should use it to its full potential. The colorway has been a pleasure to work with as stormy blues always put me in a calm and relaxant state. And watching the fabric grow from thick to think and somewhere in between has added a bit of adventure to the mix.

I had a dream last night about miniature Koala that you could buy from the pet store, his name was Amor. And as a intriguing challenge I will attempt to knit a miniature Koala! Which will then be offered as a free pattern on here..and Ravelry. Stay tuned for details, rants, and pure adoration.

The weather changes on a whim from chilly rain to comfortable wind to miserable heat within twenty-four hours from each other. How is a knitter to make up their mind as to what project to toss into the All-Day-Bag? Should it be the chunky cotton shawl, the circular ribbed wool sweater, or a small project that can keep safe from moisture? This is where I the author plop down in my seat and sigh and throw my hands to the ceiling in distress! It has been such a ridiculous ordeal that I don’t have the desire to do anything but stare at the walls in hope that Reasoning would crawl back inside reclaiming her position. Bah! It is all out the door and no signs point to the return of such things.

For my birthday I “splurged” (in which I bought a slightly more costly wool than usual but nothing insane to break the bank) on some Cascades thick and thin yarn not knowing what exactly I was going to do with such a thing. One skein + logic n’ strategy = hat. Fibronacci numbers as an inspiration and began to write the pattern as I knitted along. So, here is the tale of my progess in rhyme.

On I cast the stitches there
In which the needles could hardly bare
From off the ends the wool did slide
Slip and slink from the left to right.

Quick I went now double fisted
To keep my stitches becoming twisted
Knit two, purl two a rib so snug
I clicked onward without a shrug

Thirteen, eight, five, three, two
One to one, now what to do?
