holding our place

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.

now mine looks

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).

‘friend’ taken from 27:6 in the proverbs.
