Cardigans, Berets and Bible Covers

"Happy the man, and happy he alone, he who can call today his own; he who, secure within, can say 'tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.'" - John Dryden

What with the holidays, a mission trip and the funeral of a loved one, this blog has been sadly neglected. I have been keeping up with knitting and recipe hunting, and should have more time for both in the next few months, so (slightly more) regular posts should be forthcoming, barring any more unforeseen events.

Now for a knitting update.

I recently made myself a lightweight beret called "Rustling Leaves"

 The yarn is Eidos from the Verdant Gryphon (color name "Nichomachean Ethics." Why a lavender/gray yarn should be named after something that is black and white, I don't know). The pattern can be found here.
This is a nice hat for spring or autumn. You'll need to add extra stitches for a head larger than 22 inches around the hatband.

The cabled cardigan is coming along very well:

the first sleeve

 It is still in progress, and I'm hoping to finish it sometime this month.

Last but not least is this Bible cover:

This was also made with the "Nichomachean Ethics" yarn (as for the moral implications of making a cover for a book that teaches ethics out of a yarn that is wrongly named after ethics, I choose to classify this project as a "grey area." Please don't throw tomatoes). The pattern can be downloaded from

More to come...
