Celebrate Samhainn

The days grow shorter, the harvest comes in, we settle our debts, and we forgive one another.  When the veil parts between this world and the After World, may your tears be of joy and sorrow, loneliness, and acknowledgement that those we love will always love us.

The Wild Ride Written from the perspective of a young ghost, this story tells of her love for her family mingled with her willingness to move on from this world.

Prime Numbers

What’s the deal with prime numbers?  Grab your crayons and discover some great patterns while searching for primes!   Prime Number Grid

Every number can be written as a multiplication sentence – which can be very useful when the numbers get too big or too many.  Here’s practice re-writing each number from 2 to 100 as the multiplication of Prime Factors.  Prime Factors

Pony and Little Girl

Great for readers who are just beyond “Matt has a cat” and want a real short story just for them!  I wrote these for my pony-loving daughter, who loves solving the mystery at the end of each one.

Damask Blue Shaped Scarf

 

This very wide, very warm scarf is knit as two long stockinette tubes which loop around and under and over one another.  Short rows and wrap-and-turn accomplish the various corners.  This particular cable is copied from the beautiful collarbone tattoos of the talented web spinner at Damask Blue Designs.  The pattern is very much in “beta test” mode, and I’m pleased to offer it for free until it has been thoroughly test-knitted.
