Yarn Along: Newborn Knitted Goods and a Good Read

After taking full opportunity of crisp, cool air in a cloudless sky, I spent some time with things of beauty.  First, thoughts on the growing belly of a lovely friend for soon, I will attend her birth and I’m over the moon about that.  Her newborn babe, hours old, will slip into this diaper cover for a few early photographs and I’m over the moon about that.  I bought the pattern here on etsy, knit it in Cascade 220 Superwash #1913 Jet.

In the quiet of a morning when all the girls were at school, I checked out a book that forever changed me.  I can’t remember the last time I read a coffee table book, cover-to-cover.  More Than Human by Tim Flach is a stunning book of animal portraits.  It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before.  I read it for the third time after a run outside, lungs still burning from degrees of twenty.  Everyone in our home loved it so and in so many different ways.  If I could, I’d have everyone I know look at it.  I felt it in my heart when I looked at the pictures.  I know that sounds a bit cheesy, but seriously, it’s that incredible.

For example, the elephant’s eyelash:

What are you creating, reading, loving?
