I've been knitting like it's my job lately, and as a result, I have some FOs to show you. This is the third hat from the Tea Collection: Chai, in Quince & Co. Puffin, as modeled by my youngest daughter, Melissa. She had a little Grey Gardens thing going on last night but I love the twinkle in her eye! She's been dressing with her own distinct style since she was a 2 year old and these photos really take me back.
This is Hibiscus, done in Misti Alpaca Paints. I haven't blocked it yet, so the lace pattern isn't as pronounced as it will be.
The first one I knit, Everyday Brew, also in Misti Alpaca Paints. Stephanie appropriated it as soon as she saw it, which brings me to my exciting news: she is home from Togo!
It was rather sudden and a bit nerve racking, as she was traveling from Lome', through Paris and Brussels, just ahead of the terrorist attacks. She was flying Friday night, which meant we really didn't know for sure if she was able to leave Europe until we met her at the Norfolk airport on Saturday afternoon!
Thankfully she arrived safe and sound and completely unaware of the tragedy in Paris, as she slept on her layover in the Brussels airport!
She brought back a suitcase full of clothes in gorgeous African prints and colors. Aren't they beautiful?
I made time to sit on the beach for an hour before I headed home. As my mom said when I showed her this picture, "the beach is my happy place." So true.
Have a great week and love your life!
