Knit one Purl one

Knit one purl one,
divide the knit stitch by knitting 
twice into that same stitch,
 you now have three stitches instead of two,
continue in this way until you have 
24 stitches
a shawl
a new baby
a mended ankle!
Does anyone have the pattern for a mended mind?
My girl is back in hospital, I'm sad!

oh dear friend,
my heart is filled with the mantle of comfort for you all.
close your i close mine. open your mothers heart and breathe in slowly, deeply, infinite love. breathe in compassion, breathe out peace, breathe in wholeness, breathe out hope, breathe in trust, breathe out believing.

may the contours of your heart be filled with the power of love. may the world that surrounds you be uplifted as you return to oneness, may we all embrace each moment with the wonder of love and include each other with grace in all we do.

Hello Sue,
I don't have a pattern
but I will surround you and your daughter in the light and will hold your hand from afar!

... no pattern to share ...
I just know from the little bit of knitting that I've done is that a stitch in time saves nine and if one (or nine) need to be reworked it's ok

Dear Sue, I love your post, but I am so sorry to hear of your daughter.

I do have a pattern for the mind... it called a labyrinth. I don't know if it is your ankle, or her ankle, as most labyrinths are walked, but you can also trace the pattern with your finger and it has helped my mind, especially when things are tense around and inside me. You can find a labyrinth near you by going to the world wide labyrinth locator at or you can draw one and trace it, or think of these beautiful mandalas as you knit and create beauty with your hands. Much love to you.

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...

Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
