I am very busy trying to sew up a new summer wardrobe ( we wear summer
clothes right until the end of October here in the Big Easy). I have
sufficient dressy clothes, but, having been sick off and on for quite a
while, my everyday clothes are all falling apart.

I've been busy knitting and finished the Kimono Shawl, here's a link
so yo can see what it looks like, but mine is knit in a soft beige
Fino, a silk/alpaca blend. I still need to block mine.
knit a pair of socks this summer in Online Supersocke "Tropic", andhave another pair on the needles in shades of white to black. I justfinished knitting a scarf for a future daughter in law in Cascade 220Superwash.
Now I'm considering knitting my first Moebius using Cat Bordhi's cast-
on. Anyone have any hints or tips?
take care, Linda D. in B.C., Canada

I'm still here, I just read more than I post, sorry! Currently knitting
fingerless gloves for a friend, the only crochet project on the go is a
vast granny square that I add all my scraps to. I don't wewave, but a
friend of mine has just borrowed a spinning wheel and I'm hoping to have
a go at some point.
Linda i have made `quite` some Moebious [ in fact have one going on
just now ], many of my friends want one as a birthday present [!!!] .
I have seen this cast on , but i do my different .
i make a guage to know exactly how many stitches i need for my
Moebious ,than use a 1 size bigger needle than needed , for the cast
on , than when i turn the st to cast on the on the underside of each
st , i use the `proper` needle size,,, i always have a smaller Dp
needle ready to assist if a st gets `stuck` ...
If you never made a moebious and can crochet, maybe you shjould make
your first one in crochet !!!
When you knit it you knit in a & way ,,,,,,,,remember it might looks
that you work a bird`s nest,,,,,
Hi Mirjam, thank you for the good wishes.
I wear whatever the occasion seems to call for. Sometimes it is a
skirt, sometimes not. Lately I have been making several pairs of loose,
flowing, wide pants out of rayon challis. Nice and airy in hot weather,
but able to stop the draft when I go into an overly air conditioned
building. Yes, I have been making tops to go with them. Next, I need
to make some winter weight pants (about the weight I called summer pants
in England) plus some vests - waistcoats - to go with the existing
skirts and blouses. I have also been making some hats - small, compact,
but covering my head in the sun. Mostly straw hats so far, but I have
patterns for some canvas ones and some satin ones for dressier
occasions, when I want a hat but my very large ones would not be
