- My only Valentine. He invited me on a walk 15 valentines ago, then asked me to marry him exactly one year later. We've been through more than we could have expected - heartbreaking loss of babies, jobs, friendships, homes, and then what we were worried was our last goodbye three years ago as I was being wheeled into a life-saving surgery. This photo was taken by my brother-in-law @thecraighensel back in October at my sister's wedding and I'll cherish forever, but still not as much as I'll cherish this man in the photo.

- Another even more adorable knit mouse, made by my daughter (I had to help a little with seaming). I could die, it's so sweet! I saw this pattern by @loopandbar.kb via her YouTube podcast, and was all ready to buy it, but it's actually free! Thank you for sharing this amazing pattern with us, Kate! Speaking of good podcasts, I enjoyed @dreareneeknits audio interview with Felicia of @sweetgeorgia so much, I might listen again! She was so cheerful and sweet, the interview just made me happy! Another discovery has been @fruityknitting on YouTube, which has been so much fun to catch up on. The interview with @susanbanderson @jojilocat and @donnasmithdesigns have been my faves so far, but thankfully I have some more to go. It's such a well made podcast!

- I finished my January socks just in the nick of time! These are made out of @cascadeyarns Heritage Prints in color 24 that I got for Christmas, and a spool of navy machine knitting wool/acrylic I had on hand for the heels, toes and cuffs. I am so into the @grocerygirlsknit #sockbash2017 goal of knitting a pair of socks a month, and although this year seems pretty uncertain, I'm going to see how far I can get. I haven't been feeling good at all lately which has given me some trouble with my knitting, and Instagram has been loud with opinions so I've been avoiding it. My heart feels kind of heavy with it all, but I've been digesting this in the meantime. "Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or homeless or shivering or sick or in prison and didn’t help? He will answer them, β€˜I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you failed to do one of these things to someone who was being overlooked or ignored, that was meβ€”you failed to do it to me." Matthew 25:44-45

- I had to stay behind from our little friend's first birthday party (it's been a pretty awful pain week), so I took advantage of my inability to do much else today to knit her Pippa the Mouse. Oh this little project was so much fun! It's from the book Little Knitted Creatures by Amy Gaines, but I think you can buy the individual pattern from her ravelry store. I even snuck in a little jingle bell as I was stuffing the body, and she couldn't leave the house without a little pink scarf, too.

- Knitting my January socks and reading this incredible book from Doug. "Who are you, Jesus - an Author, tasting human misery for the sake of experiences that will go into a book he plans to write about suffering? Are you the Sage and Founder of a School of Suffering, walking about in sandals, reciting it's gospel among the poor and lowly and suffering of the world? Are you the bearded Social Activist agonizing over the problem of suffering and railing against the injustices and wickedness that cause suffering? Are you the Preacher denouncing this present generation and ascribing all suffering to its sinfulness? Are you the Government Fact Finder making a study of human needs in a given area with a view to drafting a new program to be called ACTION? Are you the Knight of Resignation and Despair going around and making the most of a rotten situation? You are none of these! You are simply and solely God's I Am incarnate in the flesh. When you accepted human form, you accepted evil and suffering as a fact of life in this world. You wasted no time agonizing over the great wound of pain and suffering in creation or in asking who dealt this wound. You simply accepted it as the mystery of existence and then devoted your life to healing it. The crowd laid bare its painful, suffering wound, and you touched the wound with your hand, your most personal human hand - and healed it. I shut the cabin door behind me, leaned against it, and closed my eyes. All my life I have been taught and told, O Christ, that you had to die on the cross to make reparation to a God who demanded justice for a rebellious creation. The very idea appalled me - and still does. The cross has always been scandalous to my mind and repulsive to my emotions - and still is. Long ago I pushed that meaning away as utterly offensive. If the time has come for me to sit up and pay attention to it, and if you are trying to tell me that your death can illuminate the darkness of pain and suffering even more than your life, then knock at my brain house. I suddenly find myself willing to listen, although I doubt I can ever believe it." Edna Hong, my new best friend, from Turn Over Any Stone

- Thanks for asking #widn @woolvanknits ! I was going to post a knitting picture since I have a bunch to put up here, but there honestly hasn't been any knitting time today. It's been one of those days where things go waaaaay different than you hope they will, and you just can't figure it out. I've kind of thrown in the towel and decided it's time for a Bengal Spice tea break. I put on my favorite sweatshirt and grabbed a stack of good Golden Books to read with the little man. We'll start with "Just For Fun," one of my favorites from when I was little. I'm not sure if you've been tagged already, but @branwenknit @postscriptlove and @thecharmofit are a couple people who come to mind!

- Another super quick shawl off the needles! This one only took a couple days and is made with only one 200yd skein of light worsted yarn + US 9 needles. This was my first time using Bluefaced Leicester Romeldale fiber, this natural grey dyed with indigo. It was a dream to work with and smelled so good, from Foothill Farm Yarn. The pattern, "Textured Shawl Recipe" by Orlane (it's free!) was mentioned by the @thegentleknitter (make sure to check out her beautiful version) on one of her recent podcasts. Not being much of a shawl knitter, it was very helpful to jump into using a recipe after just having knit @a_homespun_house 's Windswept. I'm so excited to wear this one!
