here it is,

called by the name of ‘beautiful’.

the latest version of the ‘kissed’ choker

knit up in fingering weight yarn this time.

(knit picks stroll kettle dyed sock yarn to be exact)

lots of pieces of my news yesterday had to do with the knit picks company.

in the morning,

stacey winklepleck posted an interview with me

on their community blog.

not everyone i deal with in the knitting world is wonderful to work with.

stacey is.

and there are now three of my patterns

much enjoying the company

of other indie patterns on the knit picks site.

‘line upon line’, ‘shines’ and ‘loved’ are looking forward

to another ‘friend’ of theirs

joining them

real soon.

now back to my needles…

‘beautiful’ and ‘delights’ are taken from 7:6 in the song of solomon.


 knit pick‘s comfy bulky honestly is comfy (and cozy, and cuddly… i could keep going but i’ll spare you).  really nice and machine wash’n’dry.  this yarn makes the mama in me smile.

i just reknit ‘loved’ in this yarn.  different colors and different yarn give it a different feel.  good different, yet different none the less.  change is not my easiest thing by far, but good change is worth letting the earth tremor just a tad under my feet for.

the sink princess ...


... strikes again.

my youngest, who is currently loving washing her hands every chance she gets, agreed to be photographed.  although i could only get her to stay still enough to be unfuzzy with her elbow deep in soap and water in the bathroom sink.  good enough.
