Finished Mae sweater

For my birthday this year, my parents and my Grandma Donna gave me some money to buy yarn, which is such a fun gift for me. And also, it was a timely gift, since my friend, Maeve and I decided it would be fun to do a mini Knit-A-Long (KAL), where we knit the same sweater pattern at the same time. Or rather she decided to knit a Mae sweater and I said, "Me too!" I went yarn shopping with my mom when I visited in September of last year, and came home with a sweater's quantity of smooshy-soft olive(ish) green yarn. I cast on shortly thereafter, but then set this project aside amid the whirl of Christmas gift knitting...

A rainy February day

A season of little things

Life is made up of different types of seasons, and regardless of my general feelings about the current season I'm in, I'm here, living in the midst of it. At any given point, I can look at my life and think, "Why is nothing happening?" when in reality, so many little (wondrous) things are happening every day. I'm reading again, which feels like getting back into the routine of talking with a good friend more often after falling out of touch for awhile. I'm savoring my way through one book, in particular...
