Episode 139 is live!


Once again, we have a lovely shawl pin from Jamie's Metal Works as a prize for the CFR!

Celebrating our listeners who have joined the CogKnitive 25 – , 50 –, and 75 – Bear Clubs for MBP. You can see who they all are right here. Great work!

Have YOU completed 25, 50, or 75 bears for Mother Bear Project? Send me your snail and a link to your Ravelry projects page, and CogKnitive will send you a special wristband to celebrate with you.

Add yourself to our CogKNITive Listeners Map.

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

You can now subscribe to the BLOG on your Kindle or Kindle app.

STOP THE PRESSES! The ladies at 2KnitLitChicks are running a CAL/KAL for Mother Bear project! OF COURSE YOU CAN USE YOUR BEARS FOR THEIR CONTESTS AS WELL AS MINE! The goal is to get more bears made, not to chase you all around to make your prove something...

What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

CONGRATS! to all of us for surviving the summer of Tour d'Fleece and Ravellenics! CONGRATS to the medalists!

Still in Progress:

The endless Petal Shawlette. Really should be frogged, and when I find it...

The Pivot Shawl by FickleKnitter (Michelle Miller)...5 repeats of ten done on the body.


Traveling Woman --3rd repeat of Chart A is done.


My Hitchin' a Ride Shawl in crochet, for the Rav Games continues to be my popcorn crochet when I need to keep my hands busy. Goin' like molasses, but very cuddly.

The Holly Holiday Stocking for my twin. Fair Isle knitting, how I love thee...
Annies Woolens--great for holiday knitting kits and patterns!

My  Noro Kuryon vest.well, okay, it is on time-out.

Dizzy Blondes:

BeeMiceElf fiber in SWM in a luscious dark cherry semi-solid. Stalled because of the extreme heat at home right now.

The Woolery. A great online resource, if you don't live in Kentucky.

Some personal weirdness, thanks for listening!

Mindfulness 101: Take a brief vacation, mentally if not physically.

Finding your local labyrinth

Something I Really Like:
Dragonvale--an app for the I-Touch/Pad/Phone

Put A  Lid On It: Not this episode.

The Bibles:
Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
Ball Blue Book Guide

A clarification on that strategy from episode 137.

CFR updates. Buy your pattern(s) for the Mother Bear bear-making class right here.  PATTERNS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE CFR. Will there be geocaching? There will be wine and cheese in some form. Facilities are paid for!

 The dog days of summer linger.

Thanks, Team Cog-CROCHET-tive! Well done! Another successful Ravellenics! Simpler crochet patterns are here.

Thanks to WEBS once again for their generosity!

I now own Al-dog-as and Newfie Pacas.
