the rain has returned...
we in mendocino have delighted in the warm sun that has shone during this most unusual winter
but we need the rain...
and of course, the rain gives one a wonderful excuse to KNIT
...not that one needs an excuse
at the moment, I am finishing up a baby beret with a cabled band...it began as another cable baby hat, but while I was knitting, I remembered how much I love the little cable-banded berets that I used to make...

so...a cable baby beret is on my needles...and, I have decided that when the 100th cable baby project is posted on ravelry (currently at 99!), I will offer the cable baby beret pattern as a way of celebrating...
though it is still MARCH, I am reminded, with this rain...and, indeed, with my own personal "rain" which has been relentless these past months...of this poem by Langston Hughes:
APRIL RAIN SONG
Let the rain kiss youLet the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
