counting down

The tension is mounting - excitement!

Like last year, Kristine of A Verb For Keeping Warm and I are sharing a booth: 1034, 1036 & 1038. We’ll have kits for a new Mystery Shawl (last year’s was Cactus Flower) that include yarn, a limited edition shawl pin and the first clue, all in a special Stitches West project bag! And if you can't make it to Stitch West for the mystery kit? Don't worry! We're having a Virtual Stitches West again this year too! We’ll also have some other limited edition shawl kits (more about those tomorrow). And I’ll have special shawl pins and jewelry not available on my website. Here’s a little sneak peek!
Stop by and say hello!

monday's musing

"I think I can I think I can I think I can...." - The Little Engine That Could

Can I? YES!

My newest Oddment is here!

 Meet the Elven Cloche,

a squishy hat knit in garter stitch

with a stockinette leaf draped rakishly across one side.

Knit from the top down,

the hat begins with i-cord

and then splits off into leaf,

and not leaf.

Available in the The Great Oddments Knitdown subscription eBook, and knit from Valley Yarns Northampton Bulky!

monday's musing - late edition

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- 
Because I was not a Socialist. 

"Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

"Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- 
 Because I was not a Jew.

"Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak for me."
- Martin Niemöller

Many thanks to Esther, who reminded me to post this quote. I think of it often.

Have a great week!
