Hello  & Welcome
to another season of the
KWH iPad Show!

NOTE: some of the images in this post were

Spring weather sprang early this year! 🙂 But now my iMac has sprung a leak and died… again… It’s gone for sure, this time 😥

It happened the day after last weekend’s Easter/birthday blog post celebrations. So it’s been a topsy-turvy week. Interestingly, it was last year at this time (almost to the day), when my iMac went down for 6 weeks from April 29th until summer solstice 2014… Talk about an awkwardly ironic sense of deja vu :-/ Anyway, that’s when/why the “KWH iPad Show” was born 🙂 It’s just a way to amuse myself, while making my way through a rough blogging patch.

Now once again, the loss of my iMac has brought renewed purpose for the iPad. Thank Goodness for this blogful “plan B” and cyber-life-saving option! Now back to the iPad blogging board, for me… Let’s hope this season is short and sweet 😉

Replacing the ol’ iMac with a refurbished model from the Apple Online Store seems like a reasonably safe/economical solution… Unless you can suggest a better idea? It’ll only be a couple thousand bucks… which means right about now would be the perfect time to sell a couple thousand copies of my Bramble💜TINI knitting pattern, right?!? 😉 One way or another, until then… it’s just you, me & my iPad 🙂

As well, my inbox overflows at the best of times. Relying now on our ISP’s extremely basic webmail is turning that into an absolute nightmare. Please advise, if you know of a reliable, no-cost online inbox system for the iPad. Thanks!

Well, that’s all for this episode. Let’s wrap it up with links (starting top-down)
for all 8 episodes from season 1 of the KWH iPad Show… Thanks for watching! 😀

You might think your mom is invincible…
Your mom might feel like she is invisible…
Have you noticed your mother today?

Both our mothers live far away…
But if we could, we’d hug them today!
And that would be a very, very
Happy Mother’s Day 
🙂 ♥ Jackie

Have no fear… the Pumpkin Bramble❤tini Boooookmark is here!

Bramble❤tini bookmarkTonight is halloween. And since I love pumpkins, I thought it’d be nice to spice things up and treat myself to a pumkin-ized Bramble❤tini Heart Boooookmark… Mmwah hahahahaaa…
What do you think of it? I think it’s a neat little treat—not scary at all. And the only trick was a cinch, since my stash just happened to have “pumpkin” coloured yarn 😉

You can buy this pattern today for just $1.50, via Craftsy and Ravelry (I’m still trying to figure out how to add a PayPal link directly to this blog). Then you can start knitting your very own Bramble❤tini Heart “pumpkin patch” right away, using pumpkin/harvest coloured yarns 🙂

The pattern PDF includes instructions to knit
2-sided AND 1-sided Bramble❤tini Hearts.

HOW TO MAKE: the Bramble❤tini Heart Bookmark with a drawstring loop
(as pictured, featuring flexible design to fit various sizes of books).

1. Knit a heart.
 — knit either one 2-sided heart,
— — or knit two 1-sided hearts (increasing needle size to make the back heart
— — slightly larger than the front, then sewing the two 1-sided hearts together).
2. Cut a length of yarn.
 — I used a strand measuring approximately 3x the height of my book.
3. Secure one end of the yarn strand to inside (WS) of the 2 sides.
4. Insert the other yarn end (out toward RS) through the heart’s backside B&T.
 — pull just enough to tie a big knot, making this your pull-tab end.

That’s it!
Wrap the loop around your book and never lose your page again 🙂
And remember, I’m right here if anyone has any questions.
