We have a teacher that my son is convinced is an angel.
I'm tempted to believe him, with her blond hair and blue-blue eyes she exudes that. Of course, I know she would deny it and I know that none of us really want to be angels, at least all the time, as we are all here to work on things, but we like to pretend sometimes.
And, when your sweet boy looks up at you and says "No mommy really, she's an angel". Well, I'm tempted to just agree.
So, her birthday happened recently. She had been speaking with some of the moms about how to keep her legs warm in rain boots as they were always cold.
Secretly I smiled a tricky smile and saw a perfect excuse to knit something. The color, according to my son had to be "blue-blue like her eyes, mommy". So, even though these legwarmers would not cooperate while being photographed, they are actually the most beautiful color of blue-blue if I've ever seen it.
Fabulous thick yarn and big needles, these bad boys were done in no time.
The woman who spins this yarn I met at a winter faire this past year. Her yarn is solar dyed in vats of seawater. Yes, even though I need no other yarn, some of this needed to come home with me. You will be seeing more projects from this yarn soon. It's so luxurious to knit with.
My son watercolored a tag and gifted them to her with a, "Happy Birthday. They are the color of your eyes."
Um yeah. Her heart melted. My heart melted. She started crying.
It was good.
Really it's the best kind of knitting. Simple. Straight-forward. Bringing a smile to someones face.
Yup, good stuff.
