Overdue post: a 100% alpaca wool basketweave scarf I knit for a fellow aquatic for Christmas 2012. 

Found this gem from my Korea days.  My creepiness knew no bounds. In my defense, their communication with one another was just so beautiful I couldn’t resist documenting 

P.S. Also, you, yes you sitting in front of that computa screen or mobile device, you’re perfectly perfect. You’re not too short too fat too skinny too freckled too silly too slow too smart too pimply or too cray cray. You’s a good one. You’s juuuuust right. 

The accidentally single serving picnic basket evoluuution ! 

Simple, creative, lovely, ethereal. Their voices display a maturity way beyond their years. 

Remember this post?  Well… it’s finally beginning to look like the finished product, a vest. 
I watched a whole bunch of khan academy videos while knitting this particular project, as it turned out to be very tedious and repetitive. Multitasking ftw.

knitting to life metaphor #1: 

one may look neat and put together on the outside but be a complete mess on the inside. and that’s a-ok.

happy mother’s day, mom. I love you so so much. I tried to sew a Mon <3 Mom design onto the pillow, but as you can see I made a huge purple thread mess instead…

I am so grateful to God and am going to give Him a big hug one day  //  for allowing me to have been born your daughter in May. // I wouldn’t have it any other way.  // Try not to miss me and Erica too much today. // Only 37 days and counting til we are all reunited in our beloved kitchen yaaaay!!!! 

Love, your favorite firstborn who has nothing more to say   heh heh
