As I have mentioned before, my current crafting fixation is knitting. After a year of sporadic work, I recently finished a very sloppy but awesome scarf for Jiji. Now I want to make a blankie for Mojo.  I started one, with a simple basket weave pattern, but because I can only work on it a bit at a time I lose count and get lost in the pattern.  My solution? Squares! I have found several super-awesome patterns for "dishcloth" squares, so I can make them one at a time, and when I have enough, whipstitch them together.  I know myself well enough to know several small projects work better than one looooong one...I lose patience and interest.  As I was browsing through the free patterns on Ravelry at 2:30 this morning while trying to get Mo back to sleep, I found several interesting patterns. Great sigils like a Pentacle, Trefoil, Raven, Moon and Stars, as well as ones that are meaningful to our family like a lady bug, a honeybee, and a 4-leaf clover. So I am going to get started today on a Pentacle square, and just make up a bunch, then when it is assembled Mojo will have a Magickal blankie to snuggle at night. I will keep you posted on progress.

I am sorry to see that your new site didn't do very well. I know how excited you were about it. I am eager to see what you will do with it. I fear that I may have contributed to your lack of readership as I have not been reading much in Blogland lately. I changed my site slightly as well. A co-worker was harassing me on it so I stuck a dash in between the words {} in the address. By doing this I seemed to have lost all of my readers, as they can't find me any longer. Just thought that I would pop over and see what is up. I love your craftiness by the way!
