we spent a good
part of today
the blue ridge mountains
‘why are they blue?
trees on mountains aren’t blue.’
this was backseat commentary
from my 5 yr old boy.
who after a little quiet
continued on with,
‘i feel so small when we are
driving beside them.”
i relate as i
am feeling so very
unworthy of having been given
the gift, for that is what it is,
of being allowed to raise another
woman’s infant son.
am i good enough?
when this world
as it does
and we both know
how it shakes some people up.
so how did You decide to give me so much love?”
‘raise’ taken from 8:1 in proverbs.
soundtrack of the day: ‘lorraine’ by lori mckenna.
sts on the road: coriandi and some hush, hush project knitting.
planning to leave
to head out early
to outrun yet another
with a fresh 3 inches
on the ground
we face ‘helga’ due south
and hit the gas.
the following ‘soundtrack of the day’ brought to you by lucy, and good ol’ charlie brown:
and way up there the little stars and planets
make the rain that falls in showers
and when it’s cold and winter is upon us
the snow comes up! just like the flowers!
now lucy, i know that’s wrong.
snow does not come up, it comes down.
after it comes up the wind blows it around so
it looks like it’s coming down but actually
it comes up out of the ground like grass!
it comes up charlie brown!
snow comes up!
oh good grief!

sts on the road: buy cheap clomid online uk final rnds of the new ‘tamarisk’ in the photo. in test knitting now.
(quirkily: def: done in a quirky way, odd, unusual)
i like my neck to be warm.
if not, i’m cold
so i designed this vest
with a front piece that wraps
around to snuggle the bare skin
between the tips of my hair and the top of my t-shirt.
it’s not meant to close in the front,
think of it like a scarf
with a racerback
rather than a cardi
sleeves to speak of.
it’s the striping
that really kicks
it into overdrive.
will knit up just fine.
so pick your palette
based on your mood,
or your skin tone
or your favorite jeans
and have at it.
so i’m sure
you’ll be glad you did.

as of today,
the newest issue of knitscene magazine
(aka: winter/spring 2011) should be findable;
by which i mean out on the shelves of your favorite lys, bookshop, etc.
my earliest sneak peak of it was in a knitscene blog post just over a month ago.
the first time
i saw this photo
in the post,
but i just
put my finger on
why or how
that could be.
then it registered that the colors of the yarn in the photo on top of the stack of papers
was the very yarn i had knit the ‘eternalism vest’ for this issue up in.
next it sunk in that, although it was upside down and a bit cock-eyed
this was part of the final pattern for that very same vest.
and now, with the issue out and available,
i can finally tell you that it is just that.
more photos of at least two versions of the actual vest soon. i promise.
