you get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place.

like you'll not only miss the people you love
but you'll miss the person you are 
at this time
and this place
because you'll never be this way
ever again.

love of beauty 
is taste
the creation of beauty
is art.

new etsy shop!!!!

i finally opened my own etsy shop!!!

it has only just opened
so i only have one item listed
but it's pretty exciting.
i will be adding more items
this summer
which will include jewelry
among other things.

i have been making my own knitting needles
out of poplar and pine.
they are size 50
so they are super jumbo
for knitting with super bulky yarn
or roving.

i knitted the cowl below
(yarn and needles also available at home ec workshop in iowa city)
70% alpaca, 15% wool and 15% nylon. 
its super fun and fast,
so fast i almost want to take it apart to knit it again!

thanks for looking!

she was beautiful,

but she was beautiful
in the way 
a forest fire was beautiful,

something to be admired
from a distance,

not up close.

i can’t explain what i mean. 

and even if i could, 

i’m not sure i’d feel like it.
