Episode 111 is Live


I have lost my wonderful friend of the past 6 years. Artemis died quietly of unknown causes at the age of 12 years. I have lost the beloved friend who ran up the road every evening to greet my car as I returned from work. She takes a big piece of my heart with her.

The 2011 CogKnitive Fiber Retreat continues to be open for sign-up for the wiaiting list. The Retreat is scheduled for October 1 (believe me, it will be here before you know it). IF you have signed up for the first attendees list and been accepted (not the wait list), your payment is due!

The wait list is at 8 as I type this, but we seem likely to lose a few people to Vogue Knitting, so do not give up hope!

Add yourself to our CogKNITive Listeners Map.

We have a webiste at You can find older episodes there.

What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:


20th Anniversary One-Row Scarf, done in my handpsun from BeeMiceElf SW Merino in colorway Shopaholic:

Still in Progress:

TwinFace's 2011 Holiday Afghan, themed after the Third Doctor of Classic Doctor Who. *wheeze*

Mother Bear Project Bear #10. They look so pathetic at this early stage.... This is due for finishing the scarf.

4x4 Sweet Tortie Socks, being made in SWM from FatCatKnits, colorway is Sweet Tortie. Very soft and luscious, but too scrambled to look good as anything but a good pair of socks. I can't wait to wear these babies!

Dizzy Blondes:

So it's plying time again...
2 bobbins of BeeMiceElf merino in lovely pinks and purples...


Judy's Novelty Wool in Corriedale Mendocine/Blues, sportweight, N-plied:


Strategy: Letting go by understanding that life must flow.

Something I Really Like:

Yes, I finally got a Kindle!

So sorry to hear about Artemis. Loosing them is so hard, but having them while we can makes life much better.

I am so, so sorry about Artemis's passing. That breaks my heart when one loses their beloved family pet. Blessings on Artemis and your family.

Sorry you lost your Artemis. I hope he is frolicking in Heaven and waiting to shepherd you there when it's your time many years hence!

Gemma, I was sad to hear of your loss. Artemis was apparently a great 'dawg' & I know you shall miss her.

As one who is owned by a German Shepherd also, I know you must be devasted. Nola, my shepherd, is so smart that I forget that she is not one of my children! They are special creatures and I know Artemis will be missed.
