happiness is ...

One project off the needles ...

my new shrug ...

Another one on ...

A third waiting in the wings.

Nothing makes me happier than experiencing the delight of beautiful wool caressing my fingers, lingering in my hands.  I  express my love through wool.  There is great pleasure in the making and more pleasure in knowing I have the perfect person in mind for the particular piece I am working on.  

How I love Autumn!  Time to cuddle up, cozy in, a mug of something spicy and warm by my side and the sense of short days filled with my most favorite of things.  Perhaps it is knowing the days are shorter, I tend to plan less but focus more intently upon what I do love, what does matter.

Quick now, here, now, always-
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)

T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding

  1. ooooh!! wooly goodness!!!

    i've yet to embark on anything as ambitious as a large firm desire that knitting ought to be contemplative not frustrative keeps me noodling away with smaller projects. but i'm almost bored of that means it's time to branch out....

    and is there anything more happy-making than lovely wool?
