The inspiration for this scarf came from a song by Scott Makeig, and this is my favorite line of it “when loving is our day and our night”. That would make life so much more beautiful.
A free and easy pattern for pot/pan cover. I use it all the time, to keep the food hot and to let it finish cooking after the stove is turned off.
It’s a great gift for yourself, and a wonderful Christmas gift for anybody else.
Easy 2-3 hours project (a wedge is about 15-20 min), and less than one ball of Suagar-n-Cream or similar is enough.
Do not be intimidated by the short rows – in this pattern there is no need to wrap etc, just turn the needles and knit back. The gap created by the short row will help you know where your next short row should be. It makes life easier when being interrupted in the middle.
Simple instructions for a crochet version are also included.
For safety reasons yarn must be 100% cotton, and always make sure to turn the stove OFF before covering the pot/pan.
Have fun 🙂
Pattern is available HERE.
Usually I knit my own patterns. This one however is based on “Pathways Blanket” by Frankie Brown, one of my favorite designers.
Still into blankets… this one is a lap blanket for a good snuggle in front of the TV.
Needles: US13, and 80 sts.
For Crazy Corona, we managed to put 5 of our books up for free as ebooks,
2 of them are illustrated with knitted picture:
‘The First Time I Saw The Ocean‘ has so many knit pictures, it can almost be a catalog of my knits,
‘Mixed Tapestry’ has 7 pictures in a technique developed specially for this book, where the same 7 yarns are used for background and image. It’s basically 3 yarns technique twice, with a yarn in between (the 7th yarn).
We also made a recording of our novella ‘The Vulturet, Season 14’ as a silly youtube. It’s a PG romantic comedy. Link.
Stay sane & healthy
In honor of Miss Corona, some of our e-books will be free on Amazon, from April 13 – April 17. Sorry we can’t make it longer.

So, this isn’t a knit entry.
Husband & I wrote another book, a light romantic fiction. It’s a novella, in the style of The Bachelorette TV shows. We enjoyed writing it and still work on editing, but because of the Corona situation we decided to upload it on youtube, so everybody can listen to it for free. Our quality is not great, but we do our best. We record one chapter a day, and the reading will be done just before the new show will start.
If you are interested in watching it:
The channel name is Tootsy
The first chapter is here
We hope you will enjoy it, and please pass it forward
If you are like me, you have a lot of little knit pieces – experiments, studies, pieces that sis not go well or that I decided to stop in the middle. All that & more went into the quilt above. Then it was so much fun that I went on to do another one.
In truth – I have plenty left for 1-2 more. Below is my second one:
This is another knit I wanted to do for a long time. So I am going through my ‘bucket knit list’.
It’s double knit, from neck down, then picked up the sts and double knit the other side.
The image is Meher Baba’s hand writing of the word “I”.
Size: approx. 30 sts, 9.5” wide.
