Things that make me smile





- Going to bed and finding that my husband has placed a hot water bottle under the covers to keep me warm
- Amy Poehler, in all her awesomeness, being the big sister that we all wish we had growing up
- Beautiful "just because" flowers
- Jordi Savall
- Finishing that sweater, and having it fit exactly the way I wanted (pictures soon)

Have a great start to your week.

Hello
I'm not very computer savy, my apologies for probably being in the wrong blog. I'm hoping you will be doing a printable pattern for the milagro weave scarf. I think the stitch is very pretty and would be a warm shawl.

Hi Nicole, I just rediscovered your blog after a gap of many years and I just wanted say hello! I used to have a blog called "Lovely Purls" a few years ago that I abandoned but I've still be knitting like a fiend. Your site is so inspiring. Glad to see you're well and creating beautiful things!

Best,
Megan
