Episode 136 is Live!


A Freebie spin from Tour de Fleece 2012...done after I met my goals.
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:

Still in Progress:

My  Noro Kuryon vest.well, okay, it is on time-out while I figure out if I want to rip back and make it more fitted.

The endless Petal Shawlette. Really should be hibernating.... Or ripped out!

Dizzy Blondes:
My finished Tour de Fleece work:


Silk hankies on Hermione, Tour de Fleece finishing. Supported spindling. BeeMiceElf yarns!

Strategy: Keep calm and carry on--dealing with unexpected, large-scale traumas
Do waht you can, stay focused on the positive, stay with your normal routine and diet as much as possible

Something I Really Like: WestKnits Book 3--buy it on Ravelry, as I cannot locate it on Amazon or elsewhere. Excellent for using your handspun yarn!
Put  Lid On It: Keep a few quart jars on hand--it's pickling season! And make a few fast jars of jelly for gifts for the holiday season after you finish that last load of pickles.
The Bibles:
Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving
Ball Blue Book Guide
