Today, very suddenly, I got completely overwhelmed by gratitude.
I completed a red pair of “Sally Gloves” and had just finished a hat made out of golden thread, when it hit me hard.
Here I am in San Francisco, so happy to be with my husband, and doing the things that I am so very passionate about: knitting, designing and blogging.
I don’t need to worry about work, I don’t need to worry about health issues, I got a roof over my head, plenty of food, and a whole lot of loving from my man.
Dear reader, I thank the Universe on my bare knees for this wonderful situation.
What great opportunity!
Not only am I in a wonderful situation, I also have all the tools and materials at my very fingertips to execute my passions.
I got my laptop, my camera, a whole suitcase of yarn, all kinds of needles, stacks of books and last but not least my most important tool: myself.
See what is happening here? I am given a great opportunity to reach for my highest potential. And I should handle this with much respect and much gratitude!
I pledge to reach for my highest potential
I pledge to:
- Reach for my highest potential
- Be focussed on designing
- Write patterns and share them
- Produce picture tutorials
- Work with beautiful yarns
- Inspire and help other knitters
- Bring forth beauty, grace and elegance
- Blog at least 3 times a week
I am so jumping up and down of excitement right now! YES!
You better hold on to your seats for the next several months…
As for knitting
Over the past couple of days I made a pair of red Sally Gloves and also a golden color mercerized cotton hat.
For the Sally gloves I used a ball of dk alpaca, given to me by my friend Elizabeth, and I used the cutest buttons ever: vintage style pin up girls!
I love the girls! They are so cute. Look, one of them is on the phone… with Santa perhaps?
Next up is a hat made out of golden mercerized cotton. I took the Felicity Hat pattern, designed by the talented Wanett Clyde from Brooklyn, and heavily modified it.
Today, I contacted Wanett to ask her permission to publish this heavy modified Felicity pattern for free on my blog.
I am so happy to report to you that she agreed to it! So in the next few weeks, this hat pattern will be released here on Getting Purly With It.
Wanett’s Ravelry name is Nettie… so guess how this soon to be released hat pattern is going to be named..?
Lots of exciting things are going to happen around here… I simply cannot wait to share it all with you!
Thanks for reading and until the next entry…
