This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.

I had planned a happy post for today, but I just don't have it in me. My friend Rhomylly, for whom I made some caps, succumbed last night, not to breast cancer, but to a heart attack caused by the chemo. Sometimes the cure really is worse than the disease.

I have several dear friends who believe that everything happens for a reason. Rhomylly left behind an adoring husband and a five year old daughter. I just can't see the reason behind this.

This is one of the hats I made for her.
