Only in their dreams can men be truly free. ‘Twas always thus, and always thus will be.~~Tom Schulman/Dead Poet sSociety
It’s been a month now since his passing, but, he’s not forgotten. I remember. Lets honors Robin Williams by creating a DAY OF LAUGHTER (petition here) and raise awareness for depression and mental illness.
The video (below) doesn’t just prove that Robin Williams was great, it shows how he was GREAT. This is what making a difference looks like. I got chills and tears at the same time.
Have you seen this drawing that has gone viral around the net? Maybe it’s ‘cuz I can’t draw to save my life that I am absolutely ASTOUNDED by this. The artist took views through just a few pencil marks to the jaw-dropped, amazing final product that is worth waiting for. It’s incredibly realistic. He’s so missed. Thank you, Heather Rooney, for your magical touch.
Up here in the high desert and nearby cities, tree leaves are starting to turn into red and yellow. I love the smell of those pumpkin pies and Autumn is coming soon. Here’s another great piece to knit for Fall. Sausalito Estonian Rib Headband warms the ears while looking stylish on these chilly days. The Estonian Rib design imitates entrelac knitting, but, is much easier to work. One ball of each Crystal Palace Sausalito and Mini Solid makes two headbands easily.
The picture doesn’t do its justice. TENDRES BOURGEONS are delicate and feminine socks that will make your feet look nice and lovely. The many small details result in a refined and original look.
This delightful Fair Isle Swing cardigan and matching hat were designed in 4-ply Blacker Swan yarn by Tina Barrett. She was asked to make it in all sizes from newborns through to bigger children.
With raglan/top-down construction, the beautiful design may easily be adapted to suit an adult size. Would you wear one?
Do you crochet? Are you a fan of dragons? Fierce Little Dragon–but friendly–amigurumi is really good for any dragon character from books. They are universally loved. It’s on the wish list of every boy I know to protect ‘em. Thank you, Lucy, for the fantastical creature pattern!
