my friend k, brought her newly handmade
stitch markers to knitting this week.
we oohed and aahed, amazed
that she found the time,
with her daughter a newborn,
to be so creative.
then she gave each of us one.
all smiles and tickled pink
(or in this case blue),
we were like kids on Christmas morning.
like it has always been there,
hanging jauntily off the front
of my jordana paige knitting satchel
(the one i bought at my favorite lys,
fancie purls thanks to ann
in plymouth massachusetts,
as i celebrated the winning of the aslan trends knitting challenge in 2009).
