Reversible Scarves: Stefanie Moebius

May 10

Just the right weight for springtime – I made a version of my Stefanie Moebius pattern from Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes Sport. I used Woodland Heather and Sapphire Heather. I adore sport-weight yarn, which added to this project’s fun factor. I previously made one from Lorna’s Laces, and high on my to-do list is to make one from Tosh Sport too. All these companies have such great colors to choose from!

If you’d like to make one of these yourself, the pattern is from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. There are directions for the tricky-but-fun Moebius cast-on that Cat Bordhi teaches. One of the elements I like about this design is the contrasting edging; it emphasizes the intriguing Moebius shape.

Take Me Out to the Ballpark

October 26

My husband Steve and I are lucky to spend time in a small town in Ohio that has a liliputian baseball field.  It’s nestled in a grove of trees within walking distance of our house. Named in honor of Bob Feller, the famous Cleveland Indians pitcher, it was once home to the local Little League.

I used to be a trail runner and a bit of a gym rat. For now I’ve ditched the discipline of running and  am discovering the joy of  just “playing” – it’s a whole new ballgame (ha, ha).  It’s a blast to grab the softballs and mitts, head for Feller Field, and simply play catch or hit a few balls. Steve is a very good teacher and patient coach. He also has good reflexes, which is a good thing because on those rare occasions when I actually hit the ball, it tends to rocket right at him. (I keep trying to reassure him this is not intentional.)

Naturally, I had to drag knitting into this activity. What better way to lug the balls and gloves than in a string bag?  Elisa’s Nest Tote is a pattern that fits the bill perfectly. Not only is it stretchy and fun to make, but the pattern is free too. I made it about 50% bigger than the pattern called for, in Knit Picks Comfy Fingering yarn. I used blue and red, as a nod toward our adopted home team , the Cleveland Indians.
