grandma of the future

like your Great-Aunt Mildred, only younger. This is where I toss the equivalent of notes scribbled on little slips of paper torn out of mailing envelopes.

    ArchiPURLago and Aaron Padilla (Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House Curator of Education) made an appearance on the Art Ala Carte segment of the KITV 4 Morning News this morning! 

    ArchiPURLago is wearing a Hallowig (knitting pattern by Megan Reardon)

    Aaron Padilla is wearing a Beard (knitting pattern by Joanna Rankin/Happy Seamstress)

    There are several knit and crochet patterns for beards; here’s a small selection via Ravelry.com (Ravelry is free to join and is a social network for yarn crafters, a database for patterns and projects, and a great way to find variations and modifications for patterns). If you don’t knit or crochet, there are several available from sellers on Etsy, from Beard Head, or from Beardo

    "It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."

    A little late-night knitting, setting up my travel project for the drive to NYC tomorrow. Baby Surprise Jacket, Berroco Vintage, for a dear friends first child. Quilt is @knitgrrl’s and won’t fit in my luggage. #yearofmaking #knitstagram #knit

    Second breakfast today was a veggie bun from Noodlecat in Cleveland - house-pickled cucumber and onion, with sprouts and miso mayo. Super good - really fresh and crisp veggies, soft steamed bun.
