Me, too, for all of it- cold & news. I didn't follow the pattern, just knit in the round until 9-10in, w/o any decreases, then kitchner bind off across the top, or you could regular bind off across top & stitch it together on the wrong side. Is there a march in Bellingham?

I kept adding stitches, trying to make it work. Tucking here, tacking the "water" over its edge there. All of it dancing around the truth. Nope, not working. Unsalvageable. (This is not a before, rather a during the scissor attack photo. Oh, the horror…) Sometimes you've just got to let... Continue reading

Yesterday I was wondering on my obsession with houses & ships, what all & who all they're about.

It was a dream place, one I'd never been to before. A cabin at the water's edge, I woke before getting to see it. Interestingly, the next day herons were in something I picked up to read.

I love how solid you are, and how this cloth is evolving, and how you see yourself. Have knit one hat so far, will go to the Seattle march.
