DIY Knit Outlander Inspired Cowl Free pattern by Kalurah on Ravelry.  I have seen a pay pattern on Etsy almost identical to this one, except I like this one better. “The Gathering” cowl is knit with size 50 (25mm) needles. It is free to sign up for Ravelry (no spam). Kalurah describes the cowl:

This cowl is inspired by the cowl worn by Claire Randall on the hit series Outlander.


I’ve studied the photos online and I think I have a really close interpretation. The cowl is knit entirely in Garter Stitch and the seam from Provisional Cast On and Kitchener Stitch is completely INVISIBLE!
The pattern has two full twists worked into the cowl so there’s no need to fuss with it after putting it on.
Cowl is SUPER stretchy and can be pulled down over your shoulders for an adorable little Capelet or pulled over your head and worn as a hood.

Here’s another Outlander DIY Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf Pattern from Knit 1 LA.


This is great! I think I am going to make one!


I was looking for a patten for this! So making one.

Gotta make this stat!

At almost 20 months!

This kid has been on a row…

-Last week he told a loud lady in the elevator to  “shhh,”  index finger on his mouth and all.

-He continues to greet everyone at social gatherings… then quickly wiping his hands on the back of his shirt. Hilarious!

-He taunts his older cousin, my sweet Kami whenever she’s playing solo.

-Loves to be chased.

-Last Saturday he kept throwing kisses at my sister and Mom. He’s in full cupid mode.

-An expert in stalling bedtime. Last night we read 4 different books about 5 times each.  He went down and five minutes later, he woke up.  I walked into his room and asked him to go to sleep and I sat by his crib. He wanted to hold hands…so we did… through the crib railings… until he finally went to sleep.  All this before 7:40am.  He melts my heart SO Much!

-This morning, he sat at his table to draw and I told him “I love you!” His response, “Bye, I uvvv you!”

-Agua, Apple, Ball and Airplane continue to be his fave words.

-Pez (Fish) is his newest obsession.  He LOVES FISH!

-When he wants to BF, he jumps on the bed and taps my pillow so I can lie down next to him. I ask him, what’s in my breasts: he says “ECHE!” 

Milk from a bottle is ECHES!  I mean, he’s too much and I adore all of it!

-If you tell him “N-O” he will turn you in to the next adult he sees. He hates the words “no” and “stop” hard core!

-Letter recognition is amazing!  His knows his A, B, Z and I very well!

I didn’t have a hard time when he was an infant and cringed every time somebody will tell me it would get better.  Man, IT WAS NEVER BAD! I just remember nodding so I could continue adoring my child. It was basically AWESOME, but I must admit it does keep getting better and better!  Just when I think he can’t get more exciting and adorable—well, he does!!!

That moment in the am when your toddler ends up drinking your morning smoothie… after dunking his multigrain toast in it, may I add.  So cute!  Bye Kale/Banana/Cinnamon Almond Milk smoothie!

White pupils in state schools in the United States are set to be in the minority for the first time when schools return for the new term.

According to official forecasts, enrolments for the 2014-15 school year will mark the threshold when ethnic minorities become the majority.

This demographic shift has been driven by rising numbers of Hispanic pupils.

Figures are gathered by the US Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics.

It records the number of pupils in the state school system across the United States - and it publishes forecasts of enrollments in the years ahead.

The figures show a steady decline in the numbers of white pupils since the mid-1990s and a broadly stable number of black pupils, but a sharply rising number of pupils identified as Hispanic.

The school figures show the number of Hispanic pupils has more than doubled over the past two decades and is projected to continue rising in the next decade.

It means that in autumn 2014 the proportion of white pupils is expected to have fallen marginally below 50% for the first time, with about 26% of pupils Hispanic and 15% black.

There are also smaller ethnic groups of Asian pupils, native Americans and Pacific Islanders. Fewer than 3% are identified as mixed race.

The figures show how the increase in the Hispanic population has changed the demography of the school population, rising from 14% of pupils in the mid-1990s and forecast to reach 30% by the mid-2020s.

In the mid-1990s, white pupils represented almost 65% of pupils in the US state school system. The projections show that by the mid-2020s that figure will be about 45%.

But the Pew Research Center, which analyses public policy and social trends, has highlighted how there is a very different pattern in private schools, with a high proportion of white pupils. About one in 10 pupils attends a private school.

There have also been questions raised about the use in education of the term ethnic “minority”, when there is no longer a majority ethnic group within the school population.

But, who has power?

Ummm.  Are we heading into the RSA’s of the late 70’s?Who has the power?
