Twin Trees

I have been looking for a written pattern of Twin Trees. It is a cable motif or panel of two trees intertwining and it has large roots . Quite pretty. I’ve seen it on a sweater but am unable to find a written pattern. Do you have anything like that? I love this site and have gotten so many ideas from your patterns. You’re work on this site is phenomenal. Thanks for your efforts!

Response from 1knittingfool:
There are a couple patterns in Barbara Walker’s Charted Knitting Designs that match your description of intertwined trees.

Stitch'n'Bitch Calendar

A few days ago I was surprised when I went to check my standings on the Google Ad Sense page. It said $14.44. I said. “What!?!” You see, during the summer months my revenue from the Google ads had cooled off to less than $2.00 per day. This is OK because it costs about $1.00 per day to rent the space on the HostMySite ISP. So a few dollars in and a few dollars out, it all works fine. But $14.44??? What happened? Then I checked my web traffic statistics; they had all doubled!
It took a little while, but now I know that the Stitch’n Bitch calendar featured on June 20. I have the Stitch’n Bitch calendar, but I treat it as a book rather than a calendar; a book that I had not yet read. As a result, I was not aware of June 20th being anything special to me. Thanks Stitch’n Bitch — let’s do this again next year!

Knitting Array

A stitch pattern is a two dimensional array. The first dimension is the list of stitches in the row. The second dimension is the list of rows making up the pattern. It should be possible to mathematically describe a stitch pattern. And it should be possible to mathmatically compare stitch patterns for degrees of similarity
