    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

Mardel, I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet, and I am sorry for your loss.

I also know how cathartic knitting can be. And I'm sure your new grandson will help to keep your spirits up.

Mardel, I am so behind on my blog reading, and I am sorry to hear about Tabasco. How sad! I hope the news of becoming a grandmother slightly balances the sadness. One life does not replace another, but new life does allow us the chance to feel hope again.

Oh Mardel! I am so sorry to hear of your loss. But I'm glad you were able to spend the good time with her at the end.

I look forward to watching your progress on Mermaid. Ever since Mai posted hers I have had Mermaid envy (the siren call...). But I fear her as well. I am hoping that your experience will ease my fears!

Oh Mardel, what memories Otto will always hold. I know Tabasco was loved right to the end, and she knew it too.

What a precious baby sweater, and wonderful ribbon. I hope you're having a wonderful time at Sewing Camp!
