I feel so desperate for them and want to do something to make things right. But there's not a lot I can do. Other's feel the same way. So, to map out a path towards healing and helping and extending love, the crafty birds, Stephanie, Lisa and mama birdie are organizing a benefit involving the selling of crafts, which Kati and James have always been big supporters of. I will be involved with this effort. Whether it's through buying gifts for the ones that I love. Or by making something to sell. Donations to help toward the cost of the rescue mission & impending financial struggle due to James' absence can be made here.
I find a lot of comfort in knitting. I think most people do, which is why we do it, right? I finished this scarf recently and just haven't had a free moment to share it with you. But here it is in all it's glory. The pattern is Candle Flame Scarf offered up free by Chantel. This was a great pattern to knit & creates such an interesting texture, especially in Misti Alpaca, Chunky weight.
It's heavy and warm and made with lots of love for my dear friend, Katy. Her birthday's not until May, so I guess this will need to be a very early gift. I don't want her to be cold in Chico.
This little pretty is a great find from my trip to Antiques by the Bay this past weekend. It's a delicate little white flower. I usually try to bargain a bit, because I think that's the dance of the antique dealer. And, well, when in Rome, right?. But when the dealer told me that this little baby was only $3 ~ how could one argue? I did the happy dance and bought it on the spot.
Haven't taken it off since.
Anyway, the scarf is beautiful! Unfortunately the link to her website doesn't work? Maybe something's wrong with the site.
I saw on another blog (no I wasn't stalking your comments, I just happened upon it) that you will be coming to the Denver area soon?!??!?!?!?!?!?! When when when?! Would be fun to meet you!
