about the essentials of life...knitting, designing knitting, yarn for knitting...you get the idea...

Okay, here it is these many months later...

Life has turned upside down and inside out and I know that no one wants to hear about that, so I haven't blogged in forever. I didn't really set out to do so today, but I discovered an error in the Red Scarf 2006 pattern and wanted to fix it. Blogger and I aren't getting along - a long standing tradition - and I can't get to that particular post.

So - if you stumble upon that entry and want to make the scarf, there is a corrected and much easier to follow pattern (free download) on Ravelry. Let me see if I can find a direct link...be back in a minute... download now
I'm not sure that the link didn't break. I'll try to edit to fix that if it didn't! OK, it's not broken - fingers crossed that it actually works! Just in case, you can search for Red Scarf 1 or you should be able to find it under yarnangel's patterns and then follow the link. Did I mention free?

You don't need to be a Ravelry member to access patterns, but you really should consider it. It's a wonderful source for all things knitted. Membership is now open, no approval needed.

In the way of good news, meet Chiquita, the newest member of the family. Can't have a blog post without a photo, and this is one of my favorites. The sink? I really don't know. I have a cat that loves to sit in the sink. Go figure!
