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.

Late August

The changing light softens my rush, slow knits and murky colors are now filling my thoughts.

I’m ready to breathe again, life’s been slightly uncomfortable and filled with much too much stuff.

I only have the tiniest of sock toes to show.

The oaks are shedding and the squirrels are bickering about it. Again with that changing light, late August chilly evenings are my favorite 💕

I may be undoing more than I’m doing, but that’s ok, getting lost in a moment of simple distraction (whether or not productive) is beautifully useful in its own way.
