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.

How Beautiful Life Is!

Husband did the drawing,
I did the knitting,
and he did some embroidery on the white cat.
It’s fun when we work together like that.

Pattern is available here.

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!

Knitted with short rows and sl. sts.
