Japan Earthquake Relief
Our are for those who are affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. There are many ways to help.
- One of our Pipeliners, Brenda Castiel, is giving $5 from the sale of each of her patterns. Find her designs on Ravelry here. She is Goodstuff on Ravelry.
- Mary Jo, HedgehogMJ on Ravelry, has designed the Rose of Sharing to benefit Heifer International and UMCOR Pacific Emergency #3021217. All proceeds from the pattern sales will go to Heifer International and UMCOR.
I might have seen a mountain lion/cougar/panther in our woods. It was the size of a dog (medium), entirely black, but did not move like a dog. Actually it didn't move much like a cat either. I had forgotten about it until neighbors on the other side of our woods reported seeing a black panther.
The woods are still barren of green but I walk there daily to see what changes Spring will bring. I played my pipes in the woods while watching minnows in the creek. There is life.
Before repeating anything a little bird told you, be sure it wasn't a cuckoo. --Source Unknown

I forgot the wool for my Wool Peddlers Shawl aka Comfort Knitting when I visited my parents. I re-knitted the toes of a pair of Scottish Kilt Hose that I knitted in 1996. The pattern is from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush.
|1996 Project. This was before fixing them.|
|This is how much I took off he end of the toe...all that is hanging beyond the green sock.|
My challenge to you is to go through your knitted items to see what needs repair, mending or reknitting. Feel free to share! This usually does not take as long as we imagine it will.
The Norwegian Setesdal Sweater is coming along. I am almost done with the body of the sweater. What topics do you want to hear about that relate to Norwegian or color pattern knitting?
I tried to organize the types of comfort knitting from Pipeliners. It's too complicated to write about. Just listen to the episode. ;) Can you tell I'm tired of show notes right now?
Pipeliner JanMarie referred to The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee.
The music was supposed to be a live recording of Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums from St. Patrick's Day 2011. Since I cannot seem to upload the file this will have to wait until next week. Meanwhile, enjoy
Irish Ground (Tollett) performed by DaCamera available on http://www.magnatune.com/.
In the Piping Circle
Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums led the parade in Peoria on St. Patrick's Day. In this video from the Peoria Journal Star site I am in the beginning of the video, front and center, for about one second. You can see my feet marching along for another second.
