While this is an absolute down right lie, it is precisely the way I am managing any possible stress. Rather than concerning myself with petty things such as packing or finding a place to live, I have decided to just knit. So far no panic attacks have occurred so I consider it a success! Oh, those big blue eyes. I matched them perfectly to a well suited Rowan organic cotton blend. This little boy has recently learned begun to say, “Your yelcome” and the combination is like watching a puppy run. You are knocked over with the cuteness of the whole thing. So, I knitted him a little vest, thinking our new location will require such an item for months to come. Believe it or not, I have had the chance to fancy him up a few times down here already even here in the sunny south.
I found vintage military buttons at Perlina, a perfect addition to the knitting store, The Frayed Knot, where I conveniently purchased the yarn for this project. The owner is so very helpful and sweet. I just love going there. In fact, for the past two weeks I have even managed to escape for a full night to enjoy the company of a whole slew of knitters at their Tuesday Night knit night. I have been quite inspired by these visits looking around at all the amazing projects being stitched up.
Oh, and wait till you see whats in store next… a handspun project… for a little sunshine entering our lives this summer. (As a niece mind you, I am NOT expecting) Oh a baby, a little baby girl.
Anything interesting on your needles?
