the rain...

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:

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.  

Langston Hughes

  1. our weather far far east of you has been unseasonable - at 75F as we speak 4:30pm... I guess it might be too late for the "snow shoe" to drop but you never know on the East Coast of the US. Love your photos... can't wait to make the baby beret!
