A little plying
My spinning is definitely improving!
Tidal -165 yards; original batt from Funky Carolina
The sea definitely has a draw for me and 'tidal' was a perfect name for it. Colors of surf, deep sea, foamy leftovers, and seaweed are all here.
Thanks to Ravelry, much stash has flown out the door. In my quest to find the perfect knitting bag, I've fallen hopelessly in love with the Namaste Malibu bag. It holds a ton of stuff. The color is perfect and this may be the perfect knit bag for me. Whenever Bugg walks by it, she tries to take it for her own - don't worry, Pink and me - we're stickin' tight!
Another favorite of mine - Etsy proved fruitful this week as well. One of my favorite shops - Home Made Originals listed this adorable Ipod case. Bugg's nano fits perfectly!
My collection of recycled sweaters has grown with the intention of making something(s) special and that is one of my goals for this year-we'll see how that goes.
I am thinking this may need to become a somewhat modified pattern in the future.
But enough - I want to share about a new project that is near to my heart (and a lot more important than a sweater vest).
The desire to give back has descended upon me. It has been manifested in a donation drive to benefit The Hope Lodge. You can participate as soon as the donation links are established - until then, please visit the blogsite established for this effort for updates and don't forget to tell all of your friends. Truly gifted designers and knitters have been so willing to support this effort - their links are on the blog.
Today is a good day!
Everyone knows that he is a 'Momma's Boy' and his siblings think he is my favorite child.
As he matures into a young adult, his sense of humor and inclination toward compassion becomes apparent (and enjoyable).
He loves life and is carefree. I am thankful God has shared him.He would kill me if he knew I posted this photo...
Happy 15th Birthday, you special boy!
