I’m sitting here trying to squeeze everything out of these last days of summer, one last Linen Loop on the hook in the softest pink, my fading peony memories are replaced by little crocheted blooms, I’m both ready and not ready, nevertheless the little maiden in the alpine weather house is forcasting cooler studio days ahead. πŸ’•

Afterthoughts

It usually starts with a bag, because I love sewing just as much as I love knitting (especially green gingham ..I also really love matching pens & pencils too). Sometimes there’s a middle of the road stitch marker swap, doughnuts for hearts, because lately I love making cute stitch markers just as much as I love sewing and knitting. Then a bag switch, just for a dirty afternoon or two (dirty afternoons around here require dirt colored things). The ever changing light of progress, a new heel technique, the right pinback badges to express my heart, rounded toes, the purple on purple of these socks for this non-purple person, they’re just for me, a satisfying fact, no one will ever know the kick-ass handmade sweetness lying just under the laces.
