do you ever see a hank of yarn somewhere and know it's destiny is to become a pair of mittens for your niece, or a hat for your brother? or see a certain print of fabric and know it is meant to be an apron for your sister?
sometimes projects appear on my to-do list this way. and sometimes the creation comes first and i don't know why i made it other than i wanted to and later the recipient appears.
other times i meet someone and think, "i want to make a ________ for this friend."
this is the way it happened with a girl ken works with. she's having her first baby and this is my favorite thing to make a new baby. well, this and these.
knitting, papercrafts and babies!
