I am paying attention to small beauties—
as if it were our duty to find things to love,
to bind ourselves to this world.
are getting equal attention
this week, the first is super-
secret knitting for a spring
swap I am taking part in. I
am thrilled with the ideas I
have come up with and just as
as soon as I can share the details
with you I will.
I knit a pair of duck socks
using the baby sock pattern
from this book and then thought
they really needed a cute hat
to go along with them so I
am keeping my fingers crossed
that I have enough yarn to finish.
I am still reading The Homecoming of Samuel Lake
and while I am enjoying the book I did
have to skim over a few pages that dealt
with the mistreatment of an animal, something
I can not stomach; my hope is that that will
not come up again or else this will be a
book I do not finish.
