What made me think that I could get a mid-term exam and a new pattern written in the same week? I'm sorry y'all, the new pattern will be out next Friday.

In the mean time, there's always the new issue of Knitty to peruse -- complete with a pattern by Olga (and photos by the multi-talented Paloma!).

But I won't drag the suspense out any longer... you are all right, 8 legs is a sure sign of an octopus! It's a felted octopus for your toy-knitting pleasure. And I can't tell you how delighted I am that octopus knits came by to say hello. Coincidence? Hardly. Octopi are powerful creatures, you know. But I love Stacie's idea of knitted calamari - maybe that will be the next project in line. So - check back next Friday for the pattern. Again, my apologies.

Here's a photo of my desk at work. Just so you don't think I'm spending my knitting time someplace fabulous. I got a new desk this week (thank you larger, richer environmental group for the hand-me-down) and re-arranged the office a little. I think the black-eyed susans are the best feature.

wish you were here


  1. thanks for the shout out! I think we will be okay waiting another week if it means you passing your exam. Good luck!

  2. Yay! Another octopus toy -- the world can always use more! I think your desk space looks great (definitely love the black-eyed susans).
