Meher Baba’s I (as in I am)

Based on Meher Baba’s writing of the word ‘I’, from the book ‘In God’s hand’. To my surprise, even though Baba did write “I” a few times, it was never “I am”.
These are the I’s I used:

Sky Blue: Real I (i.e. mind stopped i.e. Self) = Light natural, page 1.
Blue: & when stopped feels I am unlimited. Page 17.
Purple: …feels I am this body only… page 17.
Green: The false I, page 17.
Yellow: The false I, page 17.
Orange: false I i.e. egoism, page 1.
Red: false I (i.e. mind working, egoism) = Darkness unnatural, page 1.

Cat Too, baby blanket

This pattern is available for $4.50 USD buy it now

Easy to knit, fast, and much fun Baby Blanket.

The beauty of this pattern is the easy flow of colors within the cat. That flow creates a certain feeling in the piece.
This technique continues exploring knitting with 3 yarns (the change in yellow was just me changing yarns mid-way).

Needles # 15 US for a baby blanket, or use sm-med size needles (and yarn to match) and make it into a wall hanging.
General instructions for how to make a wall hanging are included.

Yarns: use bulky/super bulky or double strand worsted weight.
Light color: Approx. 237 y/216m.
Dark:. Approx. 203 y/185m.
Cat only:. Approx. 30y/27m.
Gauge is not crucial, approx. 8sts X 12r.

For beginners: skip the border and add it later.

Below is the original one I made (not the one the pattern is made for):

Cat 1

This pattern is available for $2.99 USD buy it now

Fun, easy to knit wall hanging for a child’s room, someone who loves cats, or someone that just lost one.
The pattern includes photo instructions for how to finish & mount your picture, from my book ‘Color & Picture Knitting’.

Use needles & yarns of your choice, and your cat will be individualized. For a child’s room I would make the cat of all the little left over yarn and have it be purple pink, blue +++.

With needles #9, you will need approx:
Black – 55 y
Cat – 50 y
White – 75 y.

The chart is based on 3 yarn technique:
k a row with A,
next drop A & k/p row B
next drop B,k/p C, and back to A.Repeat…
That’s the base of it, and the cat, like a prism, separate it to the 3 colors it is.

It’s a very easy knit, and feel free to
ADD THE WHISKERS!

Rainbow Scarves

Rainbow colors delights my heart, and they are also a symbol for Meher Baba, so – double the fun!

Both scarves are knitted sideways.

Scarf one is v easy. Knit sideways and cut the yarn at the end of each row, leaving long tails.

CO # of sts for the length you want, in red, and leave long tail.

Row 1: knot red & orange, living long tails of both. k orange.

Row 2: Knot orange and yellow, living long tails. Knit yellow.

Continue like this to full rainbow ( green, blue, purple, light blue).

If the scarf is too narrow for your liking, repeat your steps backward:

after the light blue knit a purple row, then blue, green, yellow, orange and finish with red.

Give the tails a nice ‘haircut’, or live them wild!
