Inspired to Create

Summer continues apace in August. Did you know that this August has TWO full moons? The night skies are beautiful here. The stars and moon glitter and we take the time to look beyond ourselves. There are stacks and stacks of salt marsh hay in tidy bales down on the marsh. Locals wonder when those protected plover chicks will fly and watch in wonder as thousands of tree swallows swoop and twirl as they return to the wildlife refuge again. Nature gives us so many colors, textures and designs. We see beauty and patterns everywhere.

We are inspired to create. 
CHILDREN’S BUTTON JACKET, #46 - a lovely gentle over-sized children’s jacket, a great layering piece.  The pattern calls for sport weight doubled but can also use a soft worsted weight in the same gauge. Worked in 1 color or 2, the simple garter stitch makes a beautiful, simple fabric and shape.
MAC’S SPORT SOCKS #90 knit with textured organic cotton. The color is gentle, earthy and minimal with a snug fit around the instep and soft rib around the leg. Are these real socks for daytime wear or "slipper socks" as we call them at our house? No one needs to know you wear them for both.
