Tuesday Kindness 🖤 My Queens, Always check in with others. Takes little effort to acknowledge people you are sitting next to, or run into. FYI, National Suicide Prevention Hotline USA (24 H/ 7) is 1800-273-8255. #thelifeline | #tuesdaythoughts 💭
This has been in the collection for a while. I've been saving it because I had no idea what I was buying at the time and it's and merino cashmere nylon base. That was 8 or 9 months ago. Now seems like the perfect time to cast on more MCN socks. @skeinnydippingyarn in Caro's Muse.
This raspberry swirl is going back on the needles. Last night I had invasive thoughts about this shawl while I was trying to go to sleep. I'm cutting the wonky lace off of this and completing it in the stripey pattern with the eyelets.
Today I remember the day I got called and informed my best friend murdered himself. Today I remember the last text from Jared before he jumped off that ten story building. Today, I also remember sitting in my bathtub bleeding profusely while I shoveled pills into my mouth begging for the pain to end. Wanting out of the abuse and the torment. I survived. My best friends didn't. Did you know that men are at a higher risk of suicide? Let's create a society where it's okay for men to cry, to emote, to love and hug each other. Where emotions are acceptable and we stop this 'be a man' shit - it's toxic. Today, we need to talk about the documentary #TheMaskYouLiveIn @maskyoulivein and we need to discuss ways to elevate conversations to those of optimism and healing instead of circling around reminders of pain constantly. I love you Kyle. I love you Jared. Thank you for the memories. To everyone: stay strong. I say this with the most love: get over it. Read that with love. Get over it. You can climb that wall. You can fight that thought. You have the power, beloved, to get over it. To thrive. Join me. ✨💪🏼
Finally cast on the Wanderer Mukluks by Andrea Mowry. I am really enjoying the color work process. I think I may prefer it over lace.

2nd glove is coming along nicely. I want to cast something new on, but I have 3 going and I want to finish 1 or 2 first. I hope to finish these today! @swift_yarns in Wednesday. Free Koigu Fingerless Glove pattern on Rav.

When your LYS has a sale and you still have gift certificates from your bday to spend, you get to have the stash enhancement of your dreams. Finally get to work with some Malabrigo and Manos de Uruguay. Also pictured : Pima Cotton, Smooshy w Cashmere, Mad Tosh single ply and pashmina. Oh. My. God. My yarn bin overfloweth.
I have had my hand-dyed yarn packed in ziplocks to keep them safe from dust and sunlight. I think this has impacted my purchases because I can't see what I have and what will go with it. So, I got these cute bins from Ikea. Perfect! This is my whole stash of indie dyed yarns. I still have some commercial and junk yarn, but this is the stuff that inspires me.
