I was pondering the things that are making me happy this morning, and I came up with a little list:
:: This cardigan/vest that I've finally started, after a trip to a yarn store in Salt Lake City, and a lucky perfect yarn find. I fell in love with the one a lovely Danish crafter made, and after numerous exclaims of obsession, she was very kind to translate her pattern into English, and send me yarn samples. I am so very excited to work on this project! And just in time, it's getting chilly!
:: The yarn I locked eyes on, while at said yarn store (the yummy Black Sheep Wool Co. in downtown SLC). Delicious sock yarn, to be exact. No, I didn't need it. But who can pass up an opportunity to make beautiful socks? Especially in this colorway!
:: Remembering the fun of early morning hot air balloon watching with friends. Skyfest occurs every year, and it is so much fun. Watching the balloons be blown up real close, the chilly crisp early morning, a thermos of hot coffee, friends, the awe in children's faces, the excitement felt by everyone. Definitely a morning to always be remembered.
:: Musing over the tea party-for-two created by these littles a week or so ago. The photos make me smile real big. They can be so, so cute together.
:: This girl on a pony, and how I would give her the world (pony included), if I could.
:: And this boy swimming at our local hot springs. He is just such a cool kid, I can't begin to describe.
:: And the fact that I got to wear my Soulemama hat this morning, because it's finally Autumn - and CHILLY!!
Happy Autumn, everyone!!
