Day 44

It’s not any closer to anything special, it’s not an “and counting” to or from any sort of event, it’s simply just 44 days since January 1. (Those days have been beautiful, and gloomy, and cold, and snowy, and cuddly, and if I were counting, it’s 40 days until I’m another year older, and 69 days until Jason & I celebrate our silver anniversary 💘 and 127 days until summer.)

Keeping my days calm & casual, doing lots of things that make me happy, slow stiches, organizing & unorganizing, doing the rough stuff when necessary and always putting whipped cream on top.

(I pretty pleased with my first attempt at sculpting clay conversation heart stitch markers, I got the colors close and the hand pressed knit & k1 letters relatively straight!

Also, I love my little hanging spot in the studio, really, I love anywhere there’s yarn, and I also obviously love glue.)

Kitty sidenote: We’ve had Kiki for 4+ years, and when we adopted her they weren’t sure how old she was, so basically she is somewhere between baby and old lady. 💕

  1. Silver Anniversary 🍾🥂🍿congratulations! B. And I are in our 30th🥰 I cant wait for Summer, how many days again? Those stitch markers are perfect!!! Bravo 👏


    1. xoxo Congrats to you too, time just floats on by!

      Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t live here if I hated winter, but we’ve had 20″ of snow fall in a week and there isn’t anywhere left for it to go, the snow piles are hilariously huge! I still needed to attach the clasps when I took that photo (they looked edible), but are officially stitch markers now! :)


      1. That’s a lot of snow, I couldn’t handle it! I feel like I’m all done with it for the year….lol ready for sun and heat. Lakeside sounds good right about now. Those hearts look nice and soft like I could bite right in!


  2. I’m asking about those heart-y knits for RAK/Valentines Day which were a free pattern download from NoYa. If you knitted any, or even if you didn’t, how would you display or group them? I like the idea of different sizes on a thin ribbon, like a garland. You probably have a creative idea for gathering these (three or more) hearts!? Lovely, cozy photos and thoughts on your blog as usual. Thank you. ~ Julie


    1. I think stringing them on ribbon would be delightful! I also thought they would make sweet closet or drawer sachets (filled with a bit of lavender 💜) and hung or laid about …or you could poke a wooden rod inside and use them as plant or flower arrangement picks, but you might need to add a titch of glue to hold it in place.

      I think however you decide to use them will be wonderful Julie!
