Owl obsession

Ideas for feather motifs

Ideas for feather motifs

Well, this is bizarre. I had uploaded these images to the server on May 16 and forgot all about them. Not sure what happened, but during the night some trolls decided to mess with my server and publish a post that still didn’t exist. If it hadn’t been for Rosie’s comment, I never would have found out.

When I looked at the code that was generated without my intervention, there were a bunch of links to phishing websites. That’ll teach me to forget about the blog for months at a time. I’ll write a real post soon. Promise. Cross my heart.

Do you like our owl?

I spent a lot of time trying out different stitches to find a good starting point for owl feathers and my owlet motif is a heavily edited version of a stitch I found on a Russian website. Now that was fun… deciphering not-so-clear Russian instructions, and of course they use different knitting symbols from either American or Japanese sources. Owlette scarf Playing with color was the most fun part. Holst Garn Supersoft has over a hundred colors and my favorite is probably “truffle”, a grayish brown that goes well with both grays and earth tones. Just great for owls. :) Owlette scarf Front and back, in case you are curious. Owlette scarf I knit two halves and then grafted them in the middle; used a 2.5 mm circular needle and six colors of light fingering wool yarn (Holst Garn Supersoft). By the way, thank you for your comments and welcome backs (can I pluralize that?). I can’t believe you still had me in your feed after all this time. Happy Sunday everyone!

Two years later

Well, it’s been a while. After repetitive stress injuries forced me to give up knitting one more time, I got busy with non-knitting stuff and before I knew it I had stopped blogging. The past two years have included a very low-key wedding, a six-months stay in Italy, a family saga straddling four countries and two continents, a bureaucratic odyssey, another couple of curveballs, and now, finally, I am knitting again. The truth is, I can never stay away for too long. I may stop reading the blogs, looking at Ravelry, buying yarn, but sooner or later my hands feel better and I find myself opening my boxes of yarn, looking at color cards, and logging into Ravelry to check

Knitting woes

It happened again: my hands and arms got worse and I had to stop knitting. After several weeks of physical therapy it’s clear that I won’t be able to resume knitting any time soon, and when I do it will have to be for very short intervals. I’ve

been bummed, of course, and that’s part of why you haven’t seen any posts in two months. To make up for the loss of knitting, I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen. Cooking and baking is not great for my hands but at least the movements involved are less repetitive than in knitting and it’s easier to be careful. These past two months I’ve been trying lots of new recipes and our dinners have been more experimentatal. Some things have come out well, others have been complete disasters. No pictures of food because our kitchen is very dark and, between that and artificial light, my food photos are nothing to brag about. But I leave you with tonight’s main feature: Kelvin jumping on Ben’s shoulders at the end of dinner. This may turn out to be a good-bye post,

and I know some of you are still fans of Kelvin. :)

Bohus WIP

Almost out the door for a quick trip up north to visit family. To keep me company during the long drive is my Wild Apple pullover in progress. The yoke is done, with some frogging and tinking along the way, and I started the short rows after much scouting of Ravelry’s forums for help with many questions.

Happy holidays to you all, wherever you are.

Piper didn't seem impressed by the yoke. I don't think he can see all the colors.

About power

In the various conversations with neighbors and friends this past week the word electricity was never used.

We all said “Is your power back?”, “We are still without power.” and so on. And truly we felt powerless after a windstorm with winds up to 100 mph fell trees and power lines causing major problems in the Glendale/Pasadena area. Our house was without power for three days and three nights, and I know that those of you on the east coast who went as long as a week a while back in much harsher weather conditions know something about it. We were actually very lucky that our next-door neighbor, who is connected to a different grid

and got his power back within eight hours, let us string a cable from his house to ours so we could hook up one thing at a time. Mostly we hooked up the computer so Ben could work and then a little space heater, but we still we had to throw out all the food in our fridge and freezer and it was cold (I know, I know… Southern California cold). All my pasteis de nata, all the croissants and baguettes, the shrimp… It was sad.

package from Sweden

My eagerly awaited package from Sweden

But in the middle of it all I received a special package form Sweden, my Christmas present to myself: a Wild Apple pullover kit. That’ll keep me busy for, uh, six months or so? There hasn’t been much knitting going on here in the past couple of months following yet another hand injury and distractions of various nature. Now I hope to get back to it. A Bohus kit is a thing of beauty and I find it especially appealing at Christmas time. A book, a fire, a kitty, and a Bohus project. What more can a girl want?

Knit for penguins

The little oil-soaked penguins of New Zealand need you.

penguin sweaters

I didn't want to steal images, so this is not as cute as the real blue penguins in their colorful sweaters. For those, follow the links in the text below.

Please, check out the Worldwide Campaign To Knit Sweaters for Penguins

to prevent them from ingesting poison while they wait to be cleaned up. These tiny sweaters are a quick knit. Instructions for the Penguin Jumper in 8ply are on Skeinz’s spring newsletter. Now I have to find some wool of appropriate thickness. 8-ply doesn’t mean much to me, and unfortunately there is no mention of gauge so I’ll have to guess based on the needle size. It also seems to me that it would be easier to knit this in the round up to the wholes for the wings (are they called wings?). What do you think?

859 Fåglar

My latest book acquisitions arrived last night thanks to Ivar in Sweden. After several unsuccessful attempts at procuring these booklets online on my own, I was lucky to exchange goods with Ivar and getting my hands on these three little books by Britta Johanson: — 7668 Stjärnor (7668 Stars) — 893 Hjårtan och kronor (893 Hearts and Crowns) — 859 Fåglar (859 Birds)

A collar by any other name…

I refuse to call it cowl. The word irks me, to the point that I’ve resisted knitting one until now, I suspect, because of the name. Don’t ask me why; I haven’t the faintest idea. I know
