nothing to do but knit

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.

Well here it is- The Pebble, a free pattern on Ravelry.  (Are we friends on Ravelry?  Oh oh friend me! friend me!)

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?

  1. This made me smile as I have taken something of a similar approach with my writing and sewing. I’m working on a pillow inspired bag at the moment with yo-yo fabric flowers and planning my (possible) booth layout if I make it past the jurying process.

  2. I have really enjoyed your blog these last few weeks so I am nominating you for the Liebster Award. You do not have to participate but I love the idea of sparking creativity in someone and you have certainly caused me to think in new ways. Thank you!
