I created this for my neighbor. She was going through a rough time and wanted a necklace for every day wear, to remind her to breathe and slow down. After a bit of discussion and looking at various designs, she came up with this. A vermeil lotus charm sitting on top of a half inch sterling silver disc. I like creating personalized pieces that have meaning for the individual. For me this design has a peaceful vibe–the delicate gold vermeil lotus sitting peacefully upon a sterling disc. Like the flower sitting on top of its leaf. Can be found here in my shop.
My brother had a baby almost 4 months ago. His first. A beautiful boy. I knitted him a newborn hat a couple of months ago, and had plans to also knit a blanket. I finally made a trip to our local yarn shop. I’m not into gendered colors so I’m a bit embarrassed to show the yarn I bought is blue. But it was the only color of that particular yarn (combo of cotton and superwash wool) that appealed to me. So here it is. I’ll post a photo of the blanket when I’m done. Hah…lets see how long it takes me!!
