Nellie, Seamless Yoked Sweater, Retreat Registration!
Pipeliner Notes: A correction in last week’s episode. The site for rescuing macramé owls is www.macrameowl.com. The link was correct in the show notes but I made it plural when I said it on the podcast. My apologies to all macramé owls out there and their rescuers.
Deaf Smith, Laurel’s Kitchen, The Moosewood Cookbook were classic cookbooks in the 70's and 80's.
In my oven today: Whole Wheat Bread, Homemade Granola, and
Baked Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal from the food blog Perfecting the Pairing. I substituted raisins for chocolate chips.
Satu mentioned that bats carry rabies and that is true. If you see a bat behaving strangely then beware.
A hawk posed for me and I still had trouble identifying it. A Cooper's Hawk is about the size of a crow and has a rounded tail. The Sharp-shinned hawk is smaller and has a squared off tail.

The only difficult part of this sweater is the crocheted flower closure. Difficult for me, that is.
Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys
Free Pattern. Top down raglan with running strands that make a pattern on the yoke, cuffs, and bottom.
If I knit this pattern again I would probably add another button hole on the yoke and then not put buttons below that.
