Note Book Randomness

So, I have this little notebook with a flexible leatherette cover and graph paper pages, about 2 inches thick. I like the thing except that it won’t stay open on its own, the result of which is that I don’t use it very often. Occasionally when I am using it, I’ll flip through the used pages to see what’s there. It has several scribbled patterns for blankets, sweaters, mittens, dice bags, etc. Some pages contain notes where I was apparently trying to explain math and how to tell time to one child or another. Some pages contain partial pattern notations, like this:

Clearly a knitting notation. No clue what it was for. I generally use 4 DPNs, not 3. Mittens, perhaps? Probably not, given that using size 3 needles with only 20 stitches would be way too small for a mitten. So what is it? Alas, the world may never know. I sure don’t.

Here’s another little gem I can’t identify, this one complete with sketch:

I have no idea what that is, or what it might have been part of. Seriously. No idea. Trying to visualize something smaller at the base than at the top with points on the wider edge does nothing to refresh my memory. One might think the fact that I went so far as to make gauge and size notations would solidify it in my mind. One would be mistaken.

Moving on, this next bit of randomness isn’t even a pattern:

Some kind of Rebus puzzle, perhaps? Nope. In this case, I remember what all three images are; I just don’t remember why they’re on the same page. The first two were probably me explaining to my Hubby how the dragon tea cozy was going to work. What other reason would there be to have a tea pot and a dragon together? Unless of course the dragon was going to heat up the tea, but that could get tricky.

The third is a glyph we were toying with for use on a website my Hubby had during our pre-Blogger days. Now that one is a mystery. Not what it is, just, why it’s there with the tea pot and dragon cozy. Weird.


  1. Love it! It's always bizarre when things show up like that, isn't it?

  2. Very bizarre indeed. Apparently it's not something I'm ever going to grow out of doing, either. At least it gives me something to laugh at myself about later ;-)

  3. Oh! I finally remember what that odd pointy triangley thing is: The wings for the dragon tea cozy. Doh!
