Raspberries. They taste like summer's hottest days. So what are they doing on a thick winter cowl? Will they make winter's bitter cold end sooner? Spring's flowers bloom sooner? Summer's fruits ripen in February? Not likely. But cuddling up in this thornless berry patch before you brave winter's elements might just bring a touch of summer's warmth to your cold day. Doesn't that sound nice?

I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
