Tucked in a corner
of the library, there is a place
where few venture
and the books
have that decidedly musty smell;
where it is reminiscent of libraries
of the past –
when all the books were
rebound to be the same and
pervaded the air.
This is where I like to linger,
to peruse the words of
reading their lines,
And hope, someday,
my children will
appreciate all this too.
15 October 2010 Comments Off on cup of tea at hand
In the morning I sit, cup of tea at hand,
and listen to the chattering of voices like
little birds in summer swell.
Watching early sunlight
criss-cross the lawn
through branches and leaves to
come in the window.
The cat’s tabby paw dabbles out,
every now and then,
to flick at the dancing shadows.
And I realize I’m content,
living this life.
13 October 2010 Comments Off on a knitting pattern!
Inspired by the misty mornings of early Autumn and the lovely tea cosies featured in TOAST catalog I’ve knit up this cabled tea cosy. I’ve knit it in a beautiful donegal tweed that reminds me of Irish aran sweaters, and of craggy coasts along the ocean shore. Mine has been in constant use since finishing it a couple weeks ago. It keeps the tea toasty warm and gives tea time a homey feeling.
And I’m so excited to have this available for you to knit too! The pattern is on Ravelry for purchase (there is also a link in the page sidebar). Take a peek. I’ve also added it to my etsy shop, click here if you’re not on Ravelry.
