Best iPad case

Well, that's how it's billed. Here is a video where you have a chance to win two of them! But more importantly, take a look at the design, and think: can I do this? Of course you can!! It's a nice design, and simple to do. Some of you have iPads (I don't) so you may want one of these for yourself.

Sharing a washcloth pattern I wrote.

Here's a link to a seamless, circular washcloth I posted at Ravelry in 2010. I wrote this pattern to get rid of the usual sewn seam. The grafted "seam" creates a piece of knitting with no apparent beginning or end.

It takes less than 3 hours to complete and the Hexagonal version can be used in a pieced afghan when worked in worsted weight yarn.

What's with the shout box?

Every time I try to enter anything I get a "validation error." Earlier I'd log out and back when that happened but now that doesn't work either. Any clues?

Zauberball Socks and a Toque

I knit another pair of zauberball socks (2.25mm needles) and had enough left over to make a spring toque on 3 mm needles. I used my mother's recipe for decreasing which is done in about 5 or 6 rows and was able to use up all the yarn. I am going to Canada for a visit and will use this for the cool evenings in the spring.

It Just Goes to Show.....

Not sure exactly what. But I'm sure it just goes to show something.
Sometimes things are just so scary that you have to buy them.
