pixels 'n prose

How strange that the nature of life is change,
yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. 
And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us 
are the very ones that can break us open and help us 
blossom into who we were meant to be.

A little iPhonography today.

And a sock of course!
Despite all the images of the cuff (picots are just too photogenic!)
 progress is being made. 
I finished one sock, and the second one is on the needles!!

Intrepid Traveler in Monet's Garden Victory Sock yarn from Knitted Wit.
Love. it.

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
~ Albert Einstein 

a little knitting.
a little hot cocoa.
a little music.

Things don't seem so difficult now.

Happy Friday.

instagram redux

Since I can't seem to stop 'gramming,
I thought I should at least share some of the
sock images here, too!

I'm brilliant that way.
It just took a month to think of it!!

The yarn is Victory Sock in Monet's Garden from Knitted Wit.
Cushy goodness!!

Pattern is Intrepid Traveler with a picot cuff.

Happy Tuesday!!

instagram problem

I seem to have fallen down the rabbit hole that is Instagram.
Please pull me out!!

But I have sock pictures, so that counts for something.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; 
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

first sock of 2015

The first sock of 2015.
I've been posting to instagram a lot and thought I might try posting a 'gram' here, too.
I hope it works and looks ok!

Yarn: RSC 2014 club 'forget me knots'
Pattern: embossed leaves.
I never get tired of this pattern...
...and this yarn!

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

new journeys

Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!
I was a busy girl...

...I opened an Etsy shop. 
It is stocked with the two desktop calendars you see here.
I'm not sure where this little adventure will take me.
I do know that failure is assured if I don't even try.
And that's what I've been up to.

I have thought about a few goals for the coming year.
Getting my blogging in order is one of them.
Hopefully you will see me again before next month.


Success is not a place at which one arrives,
but rather the spirit with which one 
undertakes and continues the journey.
