Liberty Barn

Liberty Barn

This is a barn I pass at least once a week on Liberty Road.  I pulled over about two months ago and snapped a quick photo and then started work on this piece. I love the size, the pink, the whole feel of this piece.  Happy Friday peeps :)

secret knitting...

So, a college decision has been made and there is a mixture of excitement and relief in the air.  Phoebe chose Knox College which is a very small liberal arts school not too close and not too far from home that is a perfect fit for her academically and socially ( i am so happy for her!!!).  The school colors are purple and gold, which are not colors I have in my stash, so I ordered this juicy purple Malabrigo yarn to whip up a special graduation gift.  I am all set to start the Asymmetrical Cable Hat from 'One Skein' and am still looking for a great mitten pattern to go with it (suggestions welcome).  A small bit of handmade warmth to remind her of home as she ventures out into the world :)

Adventure Is Right Outside Your Door...

Adventure Is Right Outside Your Door

I have found this to be true over and over again these past few weeks. There have been hikes in new-to-me places, visits to galleries in the company of extraordinary makers, long conversations with new friends and a general sense of openness that is refreshing and welcome after the long, cold winter. Around here Spring time has turned into Adventure time :)
