Hello? Hello? Anyone there?

Wow, look at this place, covered in dust and cobwebs! It's a wonder if no one comes by here anymore with the place looking like this! Feh!

I've been doing a lot of "little" knitting, starting at the end of January with my son's DK wool socks (which he put on and has taken with him to the army and they haven't been seen or heard from since), then the Outgrown Baby Gift Sweater for my grandniece

another kippah from my pattern with lots of new, how-to pictures in the Kippalong set on flickr
Just the ends to weave in

and then a cozy for my mp3 player
Rio Carbon 5G Cozy
V2Cozy is nearly complete and I like it much better. Pictures soon!

I'm now starting a Girlfriend Shrug by Wendy for the grandniece and then I'm going to try my hand at a new knitted kippah pattern, the Keppie by Pamela, a great Bukhari style kippah and all-around goodlooking headcover! If you are having trouble downloading the pattern from her link, try right-clicking on the link she gives and save it to your hard drive and then open it.

For those of you who like your kippot small and on the flat side, Joanne Seiff, designer of the silk scullcap/kippah that appeared in Interweave Knits, Summer 2002, on Page 96 and now out of print, has designed a new kippah, which she has available for sale on her site.

Two new kippah patterns for knitters in one year. That's an increase of 100%!
