I was at the macaron shop...again.
I pulled out my knitting to match the macarons to it.
The young woman helping me thought it was so cool that
I matched the macarons to my knitting.
She even pointed it out to her co-worker.
He thought it was cool, too.

Love them.

With color one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft.

remembering max

If you follow me on facebook you may have read that we recently lost our
sweet kitty Max.

We miss him so much. The household just isn't the same.

I saw this STR colorway at Twisted and immediately thought of Max.

What could honor his sweet memory more than a special pair of Monkey socks
made with my favorite picot cuff

and my new favorite linen stitch heel?
mew. sniff. mew.

Cats come and go without ever leaving.

new socks on the needles.

a new cafe and macaron source (nuvrei).

all that newness needed to be balanced with
an old pattern (I know you know what it is!)
and a fave yarn (I know you know what this is, too).

Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
