i had a nice surprise waiting on my porch today. i knew something was coming, but i had no idea what would be in the expected package.
though this is my crafty/knitting blog, the first thing i want to share is my favorite thing of all ....
so many things my friend leanne makes moves me. i don't know why. i don't know if it's the imagery, or just that this friend i love makes such wonderful art. awhile back, she had painted this amazing scarecrow ........oh, how i coveted it !!!
but, it was not to be mine. it belongs to someone else. but, now, i have my own version of it. it's petite ... about the size of a sheet of paper. after i opened my box with the painting, i walked around my apartment trying to decide 'where' should it live. i don't know yet. it will come to me.
along with the painting, came something of the knitterly persuasion ... noro socken yarn!. i had seen it locally. i carried around a few balls of it, not being able to decide. and, when i cannot decide, i cut my strings. i put it back.
but, now i have some. and i'm thinking, perhaps i should challenge myself with this cool socken pattern on knitty.
this was not in the box, but something i made this past weekend, when i could not focus on anything else ... a little crochet .....
he is cute! i think he's a he. hmmm ... well, this little amigurumi guy is crocheted with (mostly) vanna's choice acrylique. i do like the yarn. it has a great palette.
(sigh)... it's been a long day. the timer for dinner beeped about 10 min. ago. ... that would be the timer saying, "the falafel is ready to cook".
