Thank you to Sunrise Fiber Co. for beautiful inspiring colourways and KCal’s.
I wasn’t finding a pattern that this yarn wanted to be on so I made one. I made this for an important mother in our community and it was finished around Mother’s Day so I named it accordingly <3 I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Its the end to a wonderful weekend. We had so much fun with our Treetrunk boy and getting to know his gf, such sweet kids.

Today we made Easter baskets, played bananagrams and ate French toast that papa/hubby made.

Indigo drew pictures, read books and played in his imaginary lands.

In no particular order here’s some pics from the weekend:

I guess we went on “vacation”. Our oldest arrived home sick and then we all got sick so hubby and I were taking turns taking care of everyone. Thankfully we are starting to feel better and have been getting some things done.

We are still in our sickies cave 🙁 but I made some progress: tinctures, infusions, Celtic knot knitting and the thawing of a chicken. Not pictured is some reishi broth on the stove and some fiery witches brew steeping on the kitchen counter (fire cider and habanero honey tea).

I’m almost done with my hubby’s mitts. They are long over due, like most of my knitting <3 They are also a tester for some mitts for some really awesome teens!

I’m thinking about making some book buddies. Anyone local want to do a book trade with Indigo? I want it to be local to cut down on mailing/packaging costs.

I’m also thinking about preschool/pre-K curriculum and all the art I want to make this year.

Cheers!!!
