i continue to be surprised

in this day and age that holds such a plethora of ways

to connect.

by all the different ways getting to know people


i ‘met’ margaret

of little gidding farm suris via instagram.

she was posting pics of such vibrant yarn!

i commented and we started a little conversation…

that pretty quickly led to

gorgeous yarn in the mail headed my way.

this stuff is so soft and yet manages to have excellent stitch definition.

i started knitting with it and hardly put it down

until two new hat patterns were born.

szlak & szlakow, in ‘suri delight’

check out ‘lgfsuris’ on instagram to see the farm

and to ooh & aah over the adorable little baby suris.

the fun is in how much room the streamlined shape of this wrapped poncho

leaves you to express yourself in your own way.
